By the end of 2018, Fearless Girl will be moving from Bowling Green Park on Broadway Street to her new home facing the NYSE in the heart of New York’s Financial District.
Commissioned by State Street Global Advisors and created by sculptor Kristen Visbal, Fearless Girl was originally installed on Wall Street on the eve of International Women’s Day 2017, accompanied by a call on the companies in which State Street Global Advisors invests to increase the number of women on their corporate boards.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said his city was proud to be home to the Fearless Girl.
“She is a potent symbol of the need for change at the highest levels of corporate America—and she will become a durable part of our city’s civic life,” said de Blasio. “This move to a new location will ensure that her message and impact will continue to be heard, as well as improve access for visitors. We’re grateful to State Street for their partnership in keeping the Fearless Girl here in NYC.”
