Boston's State Street Installs "Fearless Girl" Statue on Wall Street

Posted March 10, 2017

Wall Street's famous statue has a brand new neighbor and she's not taking any bull!

A 50-inch bronze statue of a girl defiantly facing Wall Street's iconic charging bull has been installed in NY as part of a month-long campaign to get companies to add more women to their boards and combat the gender pay gap in financial services.

As the third largest asset manager in the world and a significant shareholder, 2 we believe that board diversity enhances board quality-bringing together directors with different skills, backgrounds and expertise.

Artist Kristen Visbal's "Fearless Girl" drew crowds Wednesday that initially came to pose for pictures with the bull, but the novelty quickly became a NY hot spot.

The Maryland representative also said he told Trump that he believed voter fraud - which the president has often raised - is "all but nonexistent".

In the statement, SSGA noted that it issued guidelines on Wednesday that will lead to more gender-diverse boards.

This week, McCann New York, a top advertising agency, installed the statue of the girl before dawn Tuesday - with a city permit for one week.

"By the time I got my camera out, the news photographers were telling her what to do", Almonte said. "The bull is symbolic of every issue coming down the pike, that they can stand firm and hold their ground and deal with it".

USA money manager State Street said Wednesday it is going to start putting real pressure on the 3,500 companies it invests in to put more women in charge - or they'll put their money where their mouth is and leave.

Kristen Visbal, the artist who sculpted "The Fearless Girl" told the Wall Street Journal that she hoped the statue would become a symbol of hope for women working in the industry.

A group of women who work together also came to the financial district to see the statue on International Women's Day. After all, strong female leadership is good for a company's bottom line.

If there's one place where we need to grab society's patriarchal bull by the horns, it's Wall Street. Fearless Girl is a guerilla art project, much like the bull itself, which was also installed without permission in 1989 and still remains in the same site today.
