She literally can’t even.
The world’s third-largest asset manager installed a bronze statue of a defiant girl in front of the iconic Wall Street bull on Tuesday morning to celebrate International Women’s Day on Wednesday. The firm, State Street Global Advisors, manages $2.5 trillion and is leading a campaign to pressure companies to add more women to their boards. The company said it will vote against companies that don’t add more women to their boards. These guys are not taking any BS!
A company said in a statement:
“To celebrate International Women’s Day, State Street Global Advisors offered a new symbol of women in leadership. Standing strong and confident, a new iconic landmark arrives in the one place no one can ignore — New York City’s financial district.”
Good work, State Street! If there’s one place the patriarchy needs to be reminded it’s International Women’s Day it’s Wall Street.
