Celebrated ‘Fearless Girl’ statue moving next to Stock Exchange, ending year-long standoff with ‘Charging Bull’

I mean, REALLY, who could have imagined one small-statured, ponytailed, dress-wearing, otherwise-unmoved girl statue would bring so much controversy?

Well, a lot of us, right?

I mean, we know – don’t we – how thoroughly offensive it is to some folks that a woman (let alone an actual GIRL) unapologetically stand her ground. She must compromise, she must bend, she must defer…this demonstration of absolute strength is so ill-fitting for some, they can’t help but find offense in it.

I’m excited to see Fearless Girl move to her new home, to newly-inspire other women and girls…and plus, soon the “Charging Bull” sculptor, Arturo Di Modica, can rest well at night, knowing that young, fierce, girl is no longer giving his Bull a run for its money. 😂😂😂

From The New York Daily News authored by Jillian Jorgensen:

“Fearless Girl is on the move.

The much-beloved statue will depart her perch opposite the iconic Charging Bull to stare down some new scenery: The New York Stock Exchange, the Daily News has learned.

City Hall and the financial services firm that commissioned Fearless Girl, State Street Global Advisors, will announce the move Thursday.

“Our goal is to promote the power of having women in leadership, and placing her right next to the New York Stock Exchange is really the perfect metaphor,” Cyrus Taraporevala, president and CEO of State Street Global Advisors, told The News.”
