(WOMENSENEWS)– While the Department of Treasury is still deciding on who will share Alexander Hamilton’s position on the $10 bill, these Florida teens know which woman they want on the U.S. currency.

If it were up to her, Megan Sirvent would give the honor to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "She is the cutest and most important woman in history thus far," the 17-year-old Nova Southeastern University student says in this video by Jessica Roman.

Roman interviewed both male and female students at her Fort Lauderdale high school to get their perspective on which woman in history should be featured on the $10 bill.

Despite newly incited passion to continue honoring Hamilton on the note, students still had ideas about which woman would be most fit for commemoration, from Maya Angelou for her legendary writing skills to Michelle Obama, for her efforts against childhood obesity.
