Fearless Girl statue vs. Charging Bull

The Wall Street McCann Ad agency installed a statue of a girl facing off the famous Wall Street bull statue in 2017, not a woman but “The Fearless Girl.” The sculptor of the “Charging Bull” asked that the girl statue be moved because she insultingly made his bull seem like a threat rather than a positive symbol of strength. Mayor Bill de Blasio supported the girl because people need inspiration in the Trump Administration and, “Men who don’t like women taking up space are exactly why we need the Fearless Girl.”[i]
