According to the mayor of the city Bill de Blasio, this will increase the “availability” of the statue and its message “will be heard.” The New York Times noted that the authorities were also concerned about the issue of security – the statue gathers many people who can become the “target of terrorists”. Sculptor of the statue Kristen Vizbal stressed that she was pleased with the decision of the authorities to leave the statue in New York.
City authorities are considering the transfer of the bull statue, but the lawyer of her sculptor Arturo De Modica does not exclude the claim with the requirement to leave her on the spot. The statue was originally secretly installed in 1989 near the stock exchange, but later moved.
The monument “Fearless Girl” was installed on the eve of the International Women’s Day – March 7, 2017. It was set up opposite the Wall Street Bull in New York in protest against belittling the role of women in the stock market and the largest US companies. In October 2017, the creators of the monument were fined for discrimination against women.
