'Fearless Girl' statue gets new permanent home

The bull will join the Fearless Girl at a later date.

"Since Fearless Girl's placement, more than 150 companies have added a female director to their boards", Cyrus Taraporevala, State Street's president and chief executive officer, said in April. The company worked with the City of NY and the NYSE to broker the statue's first permanent site; originally, it was only meant to be in situ for one week.

Fearless Girl will now face the New York Stock Exchange building at 11 Wall Street in New York City.

The 4-foot (130-centimeter) bronze statue's unveiling at what officials said would be her permanent location happened almost two years after Boston-based financial firm State Street Global Advisors first deposited her opposite Wall Street's "Charging Bull" in what the company said was an effort to spur companies to put more women on their boards.

By the end of September, 215 U.S. firms had added at least one woman to their board since 2017, according to State Street president Cyrus Taraporevala. The statue was originally installed opposite the iconic Charging Bull statue in Bowling Green plaza to celebrate 2017's International Women's Day.

In the meantime, State Street officials are keen to point out that her tenure has come during an increase in women on company boards. The city chose to move Fearless Girl, created by artist Kristen Visbal, to the new location, citing crowding concerns.

She appeared to be issuing a challenge to "Charging Bull" at her old location on a traffic island near the tip of Manhattan.

The "Fearless Girl" statue was unveiled at her new, permanent home Monday.

Additionally, Kristen Visbal's artwork is no longer accompanied by the plaque connecting her with State Street at the new location.
