Statue: Fearless Girl
The famous Fearless Girl statue is this week making her way to the city for International Women’s Day on March 8, 2019.
She’ll be placed in Federation Square for two years before finding a permanent home.
The statue is one of four — the original opposite the Charging Bull on Wall St in New York, and the others in Oslo and Cape Town.
It is being brought to Melbourne by lawyers Maurice Blackburn and industry super funds HESTA and Cbus, as a symbol of the fight for gender equality.
Victorian Women’s Trust executive director Mary Crooks said the statue would trigger “energy in cities and towns across Melbourne to honour women and to have public pieces that signify their past and present contribution” .
