There is a movement afoot to make permanent a bronze statue of a little girl staring down a bronze statue of a very large charging bull in the Financial District. In addition to two online petitions, local elected officials are also pushing to keep the work in place. The 50-inch “Fearless Girl,” which now has its own Twitter page and hashtag, was installed on March 7, to coincide with International Women’s Day. It was commissioned by asset management company State Street Global Advisors in an effort to address the need for more women on corporate boards.
