Pop­u­lar statue in New York is given a new lo­ca­tion

Vocable (All English) - - Édito Sommaire -

The Fear­less Girl Statue has been re­lo­cated to stand op­po­site the New York Stock Ex­change. The 1.20m bronze statue of a girl with a de­fi­ant look on her face was first un­veiled in Bowl­ing Green, in front of Wall Street’s bull sculp­ture, in March 2017. It was orig­i­nally com­mis­sioned to draw at­ten­tion to the lack of women on the boards of fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions, and was meant to be tem­po­rary, but be­came so pop­u­lar with New York­ers and tourists alike that it ended up stay­ing. The statue has just been moved to its new lo­ca­tion be­cause the old spot raised safety con­cerns. “We are wel­com­ing her with open arms,” Betty Liu, ex­ec­u­tive vice chair­woman of the Ex­change, said in an in­ter­view. to re­lo­cate to trans­fer to a dif­fer­ent place / to stand, stood, stood to be lo­cated / Stock Ex­change mar­ket where stocks and bonds are traded / to un­veil to un­cover, present, in­au­gu­rate / Bowl­ing Green small pub­lic gar­den on Broad­way / bull male cow / to com­mis­sion to of­fi­cially ask sb to cre­ate sth / to draw, drew, drawn here, to at­tract / lack ab­sence, short­age / board com­mit­tee (of di­rec­tors) / to be meant to to be in­tended to / alike both... and... / lo­ca­tion place / to raise to cause, bring about, pro­voke / safety se­cu­rity / con­cern is­sue, prob­lem / chair­woman fe­male di­rec­tor, leader.
