McCann Unveils "Defiant Girl" Statue On New York's Wall Street

While a Government-backed report from Lord Mervyn Davies a year ago suggested that at least a third of United Kingdom boardroom positions should be held by women by the end of the decade.

The statue was created by Delaware-based artist Kristen Visbal, who according to the Wall Street Journal, used her friend's seven year old daughter as a muse. Her head is held high. 63% of the Chinese startups have women in leadership positions while that figure for companies in the USA & U.K.is 46% and 42% respectively. "SHE makes a difference".

"A key contributor to effective independent board leadership is diversity of thought, which requires directors with different skills, backgrounds and expertise, " Ron O'Hanley, State Street Global Advisors' CEO said in a statement. "And what you find repeatedly is having more diverse boards and more diverse senior management will actually drive better results for companies". According to SSGA, "one in four of the 3,000 largest traded United States companies don't have a single woman on their board". And almost 60% have fewer than 15% of their boards composed of women directors. According to Business Insider, the advisory group notified 3,500 companies on Tuesday of their promise to vote against boards unless companies take measures to increase female members.

The statue carved with confrontational body language and expressions was installed to raise voice against industry's gender inclusivity, lack of equal pay for women and issues with diversity.

"But when it gets to 50 percent, that's when I think it'll be right", said Sundaram, a Dallas resident and native of India who was visiting NY with his family - with the Charging Bull as one of their stops. The NYSE removed the bull the afternoon after it was put up, but the sculpture had garnered enough media attention that Arthur Piccolo, chair of the Bowling Green Association, had taken notice. In a statement, Visbal said of the statue, "This is a piece of work all women of any age, shape, color or creed can relate to".

But there's already a push brewing to make the Fearless Girl a permanent addition to Downtown's streetscape - not unlike the Charging Bull, a once-temporary public art stunt which the city granted permanent residence after a wave of popular demand.
