Fearless girl, chicken investors


 NY Daily News

 Fearless Girl’s backers seem a little scared of COVID’s effect on business in the Big Apple.

State Street Global Advisors — the financial mega-firm that set up the symbol of women’s empowerment in the heart of the Financial District — is reportedly closing its two New York City offices.

The Boston-headquartered company recently told about 500 employees they won’t be going back to Midtown offices that have been mostly shut since the start of the pandemic, according to the Wall Street Journal.

State Street reportedly plans to lease its offices, located near the Rockefeller Center, to other companies.

It made headlines in 2017 for installing a four-foot-tall bronze stall of a girl in a defiant pose just steps away from the Wall Street Bull. The work was later moved to Broad St., across from the New York Stock Exchange.

"Fearless girl"
Maybe Nancy “Bear “ Pelosi could invite the Afghani women to an ice-cream social, up in Marin County.

'Fearless girl' was never a statement on women's rights, it's an advertisement, part of the 'woke-industrial complex':

the statue is just really a sly (perhaps too sly) ad by State Street. This has been totally overlooked by most, even though the advertising aspect of this statue has been right at their feet (literally).

There is a plaque at the statue's feet that reads "Know the power of women in leadership. SHE makes a difference." While seemingly just a statement advocating for women in leadership positions, those in the Exchange-Traded Fund industry-and also those asking why State Street would do this?-will know it is something beyond that. That is because 'SHE' is of course the symbol for State Street's SPDR Gender Diversity Index ETF SHE.

Makes no sense to me. Aren't you supposed to have a black girl and a brown girl standing in a circle with her?
