Fearless Girl is a bronze sculpture by Kristen Visbal … 

… meant to “send a message” about workplace gender diversity and encourage companies to recruit women to their boards. …

After a year of staring down Wall Street’s “Charging Bull” in New York City, the “Fearless Girl” is moving.

The defiant statute is moving just a few blocks away — and will now be permanently placed across the street from the New York Stock Exchange …

I liked her original location better. Challenging the bull.

NEW YORK, USA – MARCH 29: The “Fearless Girl” statue, a four-foot statue of a young girl, defiantly looks up the iconic Wall Street “Charging Bull” sculpture in New York City, United States on March 29, 2017. “Fearless Girl” statue was installed in front of the bronze “Charging Bull” for International Women’s Day earlier this month to draw attention to the gender pay gap and lack of gender diversity on corporate boards in the financial sector.

There’s a fearless girl now in Oslo, too.

Update – T notes that State Street Corporation, the firm that commissioned the popular “Fearless Girl” statue, “agreed to pay $5 million, mostly to settle claims that it discriminated against 305 top female employees by paying them less than men in the same positions.”

Karma.
