Fearless Girl is a bronze sculpture by Kristen Visbal, commissioned by State Street Global Advisors (SSGA), a large asset management company. The statue was installed on March 7, 2017, in anticipation of International Women's Day the following day. It depicts a girl four feet high, promoting female empowerment. It is located across from the New York Stock Exchange Building in the Financial District of Manhattan in New York City.

Fearless Girl was commissioned to advertise for an index fund that comprises gender-diverse companies that have a relatively high percentage of women among their senior leadership. A plaque originally placed below the statue stated: "Know the power of women in leadership. SHE makes a difference," with "SHE" being both a descriptive pronoun and the fund's NASDAQ ticker symbol.

The statue was first installed at Bowling Green, at the intersection of Broadway and Morris Street, facing down the Charging Bull statue, but following complaints from that statue's sculptor, Arturo Di Modica, was removed in November 2018 and relocated to its current location the following month. A plaque with footprints was placed on the original site of Fearless Girl.

  • One of the attractions in the wall street area. Sometimes it is difficult to click a snap with the sculpture due to the crowd in the tourism place. Fearless Girl is a bronze sculpture designed by American sculptor, Kristen Visbal. Statue is four foot high. It is placed in front of the New York Stock Exchange.
  • This place is a real tourism place. The girl is really Fearless. Too crowd to take picture with this girl. This attracts kids very well. You can enjoy this place with family. This place is full of tourists from different countries. People smoke in public places here, so take care of health if you are allergic to smoke or high health conscious. We visited this place in May month at 11AM. Weather was awesome. You may feel cold at night time.
