Wall Street’s famous Charging Bull statue now has company. State Street Global Advisors is the world’s third-largest asset manager. It has installed a bronze statue named The Fearless Girl directly across from the Bull, and she stands for more than just artistic value.
The young girl poses confidently and defiantly in stark opposition of her bovine counterpart, and is meant to represent the fight for gender equality in today’s workforce.
By standing up to the ‘bull’ of male dominance, especially in the business world, she empowers women to do the same.
A plaque fixed to the ground in front of her reads “know the power of women in leadership”.
