Une nou­velle place pour Fearless Girl (la fille sans peur)

Vocable (Anglais) - - Grand Angle L’actualité En Images -

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.
