What happens when you ask cute kids to dig through a jar of cash and pull out bills featuring women?

Show me the money!

What happens when you ask a bunch of cute kids to dig through a jar of cash and pull out the bills that feature women?

That's kind of a rhetorical question, right?


Because as we all know, they can't do it. Cold, hard cash is the ultimate boy's club.

It's time for change!

I'd say over eight decades is more than enough time to have lapsed since we put a new face on paper money. Let's shake things up in a meaningful way.

As one of the kids in the video says:

"Girls are just as important as boys! Oh my gosh!"

Want to make it happen?

An organization called Women on 20s is encouraging President Obama to put a woman on the 20-dollar bill, but they want to know which woman the public wants to see. For some background, it's not all that difficult to change the face on cash. Women on 20s explains it:

"Fortunately, it doesn't take a messy act of Congress to change a portrait on paper money. It requires an order from the Secretary of the Treasury. With the stroke of a pen, the President can direct the Treasury Secretary to make the change. President Obama already has publicly expressed an interest in featuring more women on our money. With at least 100,000 [signatures], we can get the President's ear. That's how many names it takes to petition the White House for executive action."

So let's make it happen! Look at this list of 15 candidates and vote for three. You just need to provide your name and email address. From those 15, the top three plus Cherokee Nation Chief Wilma Mankiller will move to the final round, where you can choose your favorite. Women on 20s will submit the winner to President Obama and encourage him ask the Treasury to make a change.

This really is something we can make happen.

Wanna see some cute kids who are just as dismayed as I am that there are no women on our paper cash? Watch this.

Don't forget to vote! It'll take two minutes. Wouldn't it be cool to be a part of a change like this?

Earlier this month, a beluga whale caught the world's attention by playing fetch with a rugby ball thrown by South African researchers off the waters of Norway.

The adorable video has been watched over 20 million times, promoting people across the globe to wonder how the whale became so comfortable around humans.

It's believed that the whale, known as Hvaldimir, was at some point, trained by the Russian military and was either released or escaped.

Your first period is always a weird one. You know it's going to happen eventually, but you're not always expecting it. One day, everything is normal, then BAM. Puberty hits you in a way you can't ignore.

One dad is getting attention for the incredibly supportive way he handled his daughter's first period. "So today I got 'The Call,'" Maverick Austin started out a Facebook post that has now gone viral.

The only thing is, Austin didn't know he got "the call." His 13-year-old thought she pooped her pants. At that age, your body makes no sense whatsoever. It's a miracle every time you even think you know what's going on.

Plus-size women are in the majority. In America, 68% of women wear a size 14 or higher. Yet many plus-sized are ignored by the fashion industry. Plus-sized clothing is a $21 billion industry, however only one-fifth of clothing sales are plus-sized. On top of that, plus-sized women are often body shamed, further reinforcing that bigger body types are not mainstream despite the fact that it is common.

Plus-size fashion blogger Katie Sturino recently called out her body shamers. Sturino runs the blog, The 12ish Style, showing that plus-sized fashion isn't – and shouldn't be – limited to clothes that hide the body.

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.
