"Fearless Girl" was installed across from the Charging Bull on International Women's Day 2017 by State Street Global Advisors to advocate for getting more women on corporate boards.
The statue has been very popular with tourists. After an extension of the initial permit, she was scheduled to stay until April 2, 2017.
Since she appeared, more than 28,000 people have signed a petition to make her permanent, and officials, including Representative Carolyn Maloney, a New York Democrat, rallied for the cause.
The girl stares down the charging Wall Street bull, long held as a symbol of financial optimism and prosperity.
The newer statue does have its critics. Arturo Di Modica, the artist behind the "Charging Bull" told MarketWatch and the New York Post that his statue's adversary is "an advertising trick."
