Wednesday, which was International Women’s Day, a four foot bronze statue of a girl with her fists on her hips appeared on Wall Street. She’s facing the iconic 7,000-pound “Charging Bull.”

She’s been dubbed “Fearless Girl” and she’s a hit on social media. She already has her own Wikipedia page. She was placed there by an advertising agency, McCann New York, and the Boston investment firm, State Street Global Advisors, who have been an advocate for gender diversity in corporate America.

Stephan Tisdalle, an officer of the firm said “What this girl represents is the present, but also the future. She’s not angry at the bull — she’s confident, she knows what she’s capable of, and she’s wanting the bull to take note.” Fearless Girl has a one-week permit to remain on Wall Street but there are advocates for making her permanent. Yes, they had permission to place her there unlike those naked sculptures of the presidential candidates which were popping up.

I support the statue remaining permanent. There’s a lot of bulls for Fearless Girl to stare down. I’m pretty sure the bulls will blink first.
