Wall Street’s bull gets makeover for Women’s Day

A Wall Street company added a feminine touch to the imposing bull with imperial allure. State Street Global Advisors, an investment company, placed a sculpture of a girl in front of the well-known bronze bull. The firm wants to celebrate women on this very special day.

An an unusual scene occurred in the financial district of the Big Apple. A bronze of a petite girl has been fixed on the pavement of Bowling Green Park. The fearless girl heroically faces the combative bull. The effigie of a steer is since 1987 a symbol for male predominance and aggressive financial methods on Wall Street.

State Street Global Advisors wishes to change the macho mentalities and attract attention to the female cause. A spokesman of the financial business said that the corporation needed to point out the wage inequality and the lack of gender diversity in economic services.
