NEW SPOT FOR THE “FEARLESS GIRL”
Une nouvelle place pour Fearless Girl (la fille sans peur)
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.
