Fearless Girl lace collar, Delaware artist’s ‘Fearless Girl’ statue dons white.
In a tribute to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the “Fearless Girl” statue outside the New York Stock Exchange donned a lace collar over the weekend.
The collar was placed on the statue as part of an advertisement by State Street Global Advisors, the asset management company that commissioned the statue.
The “Fearless Girl” statue has been standing in lower Manhattan since International Women’s Day in 2017, first facing off with Wall Street’s iconic bull statue then later moved outside the New York Stock Exchange.
An ad placed in the Sunday edition of the New York Times by State Street Global Advisors showed the statue wearing a lace collar similar to Ginsburg’s iconic one, with the words “Here’s to the original” above.
“We created Fearless Girl to inspire and promote women in leadership,” Cyrus Taraporevala, president and chief executive officer of State Street Global Advisors, said in a statement to USA TODAY. Adding a lace collar to the statue was a way the company paid tribute “to the remarkable life and legacy of Justice Ginsburg,” he said.
