The iconic Wall Street bull has finally met his match, and she's female, she's fearless, she's defiant and she's ready to take on the world. The statue was put up on the eve of International Women's Day

According to USA Today, the little girl is meant to represent the lack of gender diversity and equality in the workplace. State Street Global Advisors is responsible for the statue and it was created by artist Kristen Visbal is called The Fearless Girl, and it will remain standing up against the bull at least until the end of the month, if not longer according to Reuters.

State Street Global Advisors' CEO Ron O'Hanley stated this about the piece:

"A key contributor to effective independent board leadership is diversity of thought, which requires directors with different skills, backgrounds and expertise. Today, we are calling on companies to take concrete steps to increase gender diversity on their boards and have issued clear guidance to help them begin to take action."

Because, who run the world? Girls.
