Jessica Williams Is Not Impressed with the Idea of Ladybucks

There’s a lot of talk lately about the exciting in-the-works $10 bill redesign featuring a TBD woman, but as Jessica Williams explained during last night’s Daily Show, it’s not exactly a progressive move for gender quality in the US. Instead, Williams offers up some non-obsolete forms of currency that would be a perfect place to feature a famous woman’s face, but ultimately, Williams breaks it down to this: “Honestly Jon, at the end of the day I don’t give a damn who’s on the bill. What I do care about is getting an equal share of the bill. I’d rather have 10 full Hamilton dollars than $8.45 of ladybucks. Let’s spend our time focusing on that.”
