As part of an International Women's Day campaign by USA fund manager State Street Global Assets, the company unveiled a statue of a fearless girl staring down the iconic bull.
State Street Global Advisors placed a bronze statue called "The Fearless Girl" across from the iconic charging bull to mark International Women's Day.

The company, which manages nearly $2.5 trillion in assets, marked International Women's Day with the campaign, which it says will be in effect immediately. The statue has a permit to remain there for a week, but the firm is trying to extend that permit to a month. So, not only is it terrible for a company's diversity, it's a foolish business decision!
