The Fearless Girl statue has inspired millions with her message of female empowerment and gender diversity in the, often, male dominated workplace. The Fearless girl statue, which has made herself at home staring down the wall street bull for the past 20 months has a new home, staring down the New York Stock Exchange.

The 4-foot bronze icon was first installed on Broadway in March 2017 as an International Women’s Day marketing stunt for the State Street Global Advisors. The financial services company claimed such a statue would encourage corporations to include a greater number women on their boards.

On Broadway, a bronze plate stands in her place: two footsteps, on the ground, facing the bull reads, “Fearless Girl is on the move to the New York Stock Exchange. Until she’s there, stand for her.”

The statue will soon again be joined by its counterpart, the bull, as it is scheduled to be moved to 11 Wall Street by the end of the year.

For now, she will stand alone in fearless defiance, taking the city by storm.
