Are the UK's new bank notes depicting Jane Austen a reasonable decision?

Asked by: AliceLafaye
  • A UK Change

    Jane Austen, 1775-1817, is one of the most celebrated British authors around the world. A decision to put her face on the bank note of 10 pounds really signifies the introduction for women, instead of men, on currency.
    The new note will be introduced in 2017, shaping the English society once again, and letting women have a role in English society.
    I truly do think this is a reasonable decision because there is so much criticism around the agreement. Maybe instead of Jane Austen it should be Emily or Charlotte Bronte, or maybe even Mary Wollstonecraft. I also think that many men are opposing the idea because it's a woman, not a man, and it threatens male supremacy.
