New Wall Street Statue: “The Fearless Girl”
New Wall Street Statue: Know the Power of Women in Leadership has been installed in Broadway and Morris Street, Manhattan, New York 1000, view anytime until April 07, 2017.
A new symbol on Wall Street comes with a powerful message. A bronze statue called “The Fearless Girl” now faces down the iconic charging bull in Bowling Green. A plaque at her feet reads, “Know the power of women in leadership. SHE makes a difference.” Artist Kristen Visbal’s “Fearless Girl” has been drawing crowd to pose, initially the crowd came to pose for pictures with the bull, but the novelty (fearless girl statue) quickly became a New York hot spot. This statue specifically symbolizes State Street’s current efforts – symbolic and concrete – to influence companies to add women to their boards.
