NEW! In Honor Of International Women's Day, Wall Street's Charging Bull Meets 'Fearless Girl'

"And though she be but little, she is fierce," comes to mind when viewing the "Fearless Girl," placed in front of Wall Street's famous charging bull in New York City.

In honor of International Women's Day and the one-year anniversary of its SPDR SSGA Gender Diversity Index, State Street Global Advisors placed the statue of the young girl, representing the future, in an area that where she won't be overlooked: head-to-head with the financial district's charging bull.

SSGA is urging the roughly 3,500 companies it invests in on behalf of clients, to take steps to increase the number of women on their corporate boards. According to an MSCI study, companies with strong female leadership earn more than those without women at the top.
