NEW YORK (AP) — The "Fearless Girl" statue that inspired millions with a message of female empowerment has a new permanent home in front of the New York Stock Exchange.

The statue was removed Nov. 27 from its spot opposite Wall Street's "Charging Bull" and unveiled at its new location Monday.

The hands-on-hips bronze statue was intended as a temporary display when the Boston-based State Street Global Advisors installed it in March 2017 to encourage corporations to put more women on their boards.

She appeared to be issuing a challenge to "Charging Bull" at her old location on a traffic island near the tip of Manhattan.

Tourists flocked to a traffic island for selfies with the 4-foot (130-centimeter) bronze celebrity. City officials said the crowds were causing a traffic hazard.

The bull will rejoin "Fearless Girl" at a later date.
