Challenging the norm.

There has been a new addition to Wall Street; right on the heels of International Women’s Day comes a bronze female statue with a strong defiant and unflinching composure. The Fearless Girl statue was created by sculptor Kristen Visbal, and was created to send a message to companies for them to hire more women in senior roles, as well as break down barriers for women’s rights and empower society as a whole. The symbolic statue is slated to remain for at least a month but could be a permanent monument due to its popularity. If you’re in New York, be sure to check it and watch how the statue was created in the video below.
