A Statue Of A Fearless Girl Appeared Overnight To Tame The Wall Street Bull
This little girl is all of us.
A Wall Street firm on Tuesday put up a statue of a girl in front of Lower Manhattan’s bronze bull, fearlessly staring it down.
So, move over bronze bull, there’s a new statue in town and it's no coincidence that she appeared on the morning of the "Day Without A Woman" strike, also International Women’s Day.
On Tuesday, New Yorkers and tourists in lower Manhattan found themselves staring at a bronze little girl, with hands on her hips, staring down her famed Bovine counterpart.
Installed by State Street Global Advisors, a branch of Boston-based State Street Corp., the “Fearless Girl” statue was placed in the financial heart of NYC as a call for more women to serve on corporate boards.
On that note, if you want to participate in a "Day Without A Woman" but you're not sure how, here are 6 Ways To Participate If You Can't Take Off Work.
The work is by artist Kristen Visbal, a Lewes, Del., artist who has created many bronze sculptures, ranging from sports figures to children and animals.
She's already started to inspire our young ones to stand up for themselves and what they believe in.
