The "Fearless Girl" statue was supposed to be up for only a week, but became a tourist magnet and the temporary permit was extended to one month, and eventually one year.

After a year of staring down Wall Street's "Charging Bull" in New York City, the "Fearless Girl" is moving. The statue will move about three blocks away, to outside of the stock exchange and facing the building.

"I am thrilled Fearless Girl will remain in NY, inspiring global collaboration between genders for better decisions, and an improved environment at every strata of society", said Kristen Visbal, Fearless Girl sculptor.

The 4-foot bronze statue was originally installed by State Street Global Advisors, the financial services company, on the eve of International Women's Day in March 2017, with an aim to call attention to the role of women in corporate America. "Since Fearless Girl's placement, more than 150 companies have added a female director to their boards".

Moving the statue to the pedestrian-friendly area outside the NYSE "will improve access for visitors and ensure that her message and impact continues to be heard", Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement.


The "Fearless Girl" statue, created by DE sculptor Kristen Visbal, was revealed on International Women's Day in 2017the New York Post reported. The statue of the defiant girl changed the narrative, making the bull appear like a bully, Di Modica said, according to The Washington Times. That way, it can serve as a "constant reminder of the work that public companies still have to do" to increase gender diversity on their boards. But now it will remain in New York City permanently, at the new location just around the corner.

That's not the only controversy Fearless Girl has weathered.

Not long after her debut, supporters from New York City Public Advocate Letitia James to local residents who signed an online petition called for the Fearless Girl to become a permanent New York City figure. It has stood ever since as a symbol of American capitalism.
