Put Ada Lovelace on a English Bank Note

Responsible department: Her Majesty's Treasury

Mervyn King, the Governor of the Bank of England, has announced Winston Churchill will replace social reformer Elizabeth Fry as the face of £5 notes. This means that, other than the Queen, there will be no women featuring on our English bank notes.

A campaign is already underway to support women on English bank notes:

We would like to propose Ada Lovelace - Founder of Scientific Computing - as the new face for the £10 note. A true champion of women in science and technology.
