'Fearless Girl' Statue Moving To NYSE

The

New York City's Fearless Girl is getting a new, permanent home.

The "Fearless Girl" will be moved from her spot staring down the "Charging Bull" by the end of the year, the mayor's office said.

Created by sculptor Kristen Visbal, "Fearless Girl" was originally installed on Wall Street on the eve of International Women's Day in 2017, accompanied by a call on the companies in which State Street Global Advisors invests to increase the number of women on their corporate boards.

With the goal of shedding light on the lack of gender diversity on corporate boards, the statue quickly became a tourist attraction.

The bull may also be moving, the New York Daily News reported, as the city seeks to upgrade pedestrian safety.

"Our goal is to strengthen women's leadership, and the placement of it (the statue) near the NY stock exchange is actually the ideal metaforay", - said the President and chief Executive officer of State Street Kirus Tarapore.

Di Monica and his lawyers at the New York Civil Liberties Union demanded the girl be moved, despite support for the statue from Mayor Bill De Blasio and countless celebrities including Chelsea Clinton and Jessica Chasten.

Charging Bull, which was installed in 1989, may also move, the paper reports, as the city seeks to remove the hoards of pedestrians from the median of lower Broadway near Manhattan's Bowling Green park.

"Fearless Girl" has not been without controversy. "She is a potent symbol of the need for change at the highest levels of corporate America-and she will become a durable part of our city's civic life", de Blasio said in a statement.

(NEW YORK) - The "Fearless Girl" is moving.
