McCann New York and State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) have taken responsibility for the sculpture’s presence which was installed on International Women’s Day on March 9. The piece, titled The Fearless Girl, comes as part of a call for more women advisors on corporate boards. The statue faces off the 7,000 pound “Charging Bull,” an 11-foot-tall bronze statue that has been displayed since 1989.
A plaque at her feet proclaims: ‘‘Know the power of women in leadership. SHE makes a difference.’’
State Street also announced that it had adopted new guidelines to press 3,500 public companies in which it invests to increase the number of women on their boards.
“We believe good corporate governance is a function of strong, effective and independent board leadership,” Ron O’Hanley, chief executive officer of SSGA, said in a statement.
“The Fearless Girl” was created by artist Kristen Visbal, and will remain for at least a week in the New York City’s Bowling Green Park, as McCann is negotiating with the city for her to become part of the permanent NYC art program.

The Christmas season is the time of year when gifts are on the mind of everyone. While it may be easy to get more excited about receiving gifts, I think it can be much more meaningful to give gifts. One way to truly have an impact this year is to choose at least one way to give back in a manner that is bigger than just you and your family.
So today’s my 24th birthday and unlike any other birthday I decided to do something a little different. Instead of spending a ton of money having a huge birthday party at a restaurant or bar. I decided to take some of that money, buy some Tim cards and walk around Toronto handing them out to the less fortunate. I have a lot to be thankful for in my life and there’s no better way for me to thank God for blessing me than trying to make someone else’s day. There’s no better gift than the gift of kindness! Thanks to everyone who has wished me a happy birthday and helped me in some capacity throughout my life and shoutout to @itsmatthewromeo for the inspiration to do this! #giveyourday
