In honor of International Women’s Day (March 8), a sculpture of a defiant, young girl was placed before the “Wall Street Bull” in a bold stand-off in lower Manhattan. The life-size bronze was created by Kristen Visbal with the help of investment management company, State Street Global Company and the advertising firm McCann. The plaque at the base of her feet reads: “SHE makes a difference.” The sculpture is temporarily installed in Bowling Green Park for the entire month of March.
A replication of “Fearless Girl” will be on private display on October 11 for the United Nations observance of “International Day of the Girl” in Paris. Visbal participated in a panel discussion at the the Hotel de Ville before several girl ambassadors from around the world as part of a mentoring program.
