Campaigners have hailed the Bank of England decision to have author Jane Austen appear on the new £10 note as "a brilliant day for women and a fantastic one for people power."
A 35,000-name petition was presented to the Bank in the wake of the decision to put Sir Winston Churchill on £5 notes in place of prison reformer Elizabeth Fry - one of only two female selections since historical figures were introduced in 1970.
Caroline Criado-Perez, who set up the petition on campaign site Change.org, said:
Without this campaign, without the 35,000 people who signed our Change.org petition, the Bank of England would have unthinkingly airbrushed women out of history.
