The bronze statue "Fearless Girl" faces off against Wall Street's iconic charging bull sculpture in New York on International Women's Day on Wednesday, March 8. State Street Global Advisors installed the "Fearless Girl" in Manhattan's Financial District as part of the asset manager's campaign to increase the number of women on their clients' corporate boards.
