The statue of the brave girls set next to the famous bull on wall street, was opened on the eve of International women’s day. For many Americans, the sculpture “Fearless girl” is a powerful and inspiring symbol calling for gender equality. For others it is not that other, as a publicity stunt ordered by the firm on wall street to promote its campaign to increase the number of women on corporate boards. Anyway, the statue will continue standing on wall street.
Today, the statue is a symbol which shows the strength and flexibility of women in the face of dangers they face every day. Arturo Di Modica, the artist who created the song bulls called Charging Bull, supported the installation of the statue girls, because it shows “a strong performance of American identity.” “New girl statue puts women on par with men, showing our power to the world,” he said.
Many activists demanded to remove the statue of the “Fearless girl” from wall street because it “violates the traditional view”, but activists insist that it will remain at least until 2018.
