Wall Street just got a temporary major change. A statue of a fearless "Defiant Girl" was added to Wall Street facing the iconic Wall Street bull. The statue, added in honor of International Women's Day, is a move made by State Street Global Advisors as part of campaign for other companies to add more women to their boards. The company is currently the world's third-largest asset manager and said that it would vote against boards of companies not acting to increase its number of female board members.
We’re bringing the power of women in leadership to life – right here in the center of our financial markets. pic.twitter.com/AqW492AZXJ— State Street (@StateStreet) March 7, 2017
So far, the statue is getting a lot of love.
