Friends of Fearless Girl

May 19, 2019

Fearless Girl has friends. From her 2017 unveiling in New York, facing up to the Raging Bull of Wall Street,

she and her message of empowerment for girls and women have travelled. In March she acted to mark International Women's Day, in Paternoster Square in the financial district of the City of London. The statue was chosen to promote women business leaders.

She now counts a Countess amongst her admirers as well as countless girls.

Fearless Girl also stands in Norway, South Africa and Australia.

Fearless Girl is one of the most highly honored campaigns in the history of the Cannes Lion International Festival of Creativity. The statue won 4 Grand Prix and 18 Total Lions this year at the Lions ad industry festival in France which only goes to show the potential power of a civic statue. There is obviously a great worldwide desire for such symbols of the strength of women and girls.

The world needs more fearless Girls.
