‘Fearless Girl’ Statue No Longer Staring Down ‘Charging Bull’ in NYC

The “Fearless Girl” statue has been plucked from her spot opposite Wall Street’s “Charging Bull” and will be moved to the New York Stock Exchange by the end of the year, officials said Wednesday. The statue of a defiant young girl, which became a symbol for female empowerment when it was installed on the eve of the International Women’s Day last year, was moved Tuesday night, though officials have no official date for her reinstallation at the stock exchange. A plaque with two footsteps has been installed in the statue’s former spot. “Fearless Girl is on the move to The New York Stock Exchange,” the plaque reads. “Until she’s there, stand for her.”
