NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A beloved statue is getting a new home on Wall Street.

She inspired countless girls and grown women alike with her hands on her hips, bravely facing a charging bull, but the bull sculptor never liked the Fearless Girl, because it changed the bull's meaning.

Helen agrees that Fearless Girl is better off being somewhere else.

"The girl changed the appearance of the bull," she said.

Caitlyn said she's just happy Fearless Girl -- who only had a permit for a year -- is getting a permanent home.

"She says that girls and boys, anybody can do whatever they set their mind to," she said.

Fearless Girl's new home will be in front of the New York Stock Exchange in the heart of the Financial District.

“We are proud to be home to the Fearless Girl. She is a powerful symbol of the need for change at the highest levels of corporate America—and she will become a durable part of our city’s civic life,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “This move to a new location will improve access for visitors and ensure that her message and impact continues to be heard. We’re grateful to State Street for their partnership in keeping the Fearless Girl here in New York City.”

The statue is owner by State Street Global Advisors, the asset management business of State Street Corporation.
