Just as in the January Million Women March, women came together all over the planet this past week for “International Women’s Day” rallies. One of my favorite moments was the unveiling of the newly installed “Fearless Girl” statue facing the bronze Wall Street Bull. The story behind it is wonderful as well. This is about hope, my blogs theme.

The “Bull” has stood for decades representing “America’s” strength. From Vox.com, the Boston-based State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) commissioned the statue from artist Kristen Visbal for International Women’s Day to call on companies around the world to address gender inequality and the gender pay gap. The company said that one in four of the 3,000 largest traded US companies don’t have a single woman on their board.

Among other things, though, gender equality is at the core. One image I adored was of a young girl, same size, standing alongside, eyeing the Bull, also, fearlessly. I have included the link which includes interviews of young visitors who perfectly expressed their reactions.

Of course, my Dorothy, as in Princess Leia, was in every crowd. The resistance is alive and well. Out of the darkness comes the hope of the future.

Do you have anything to share about International Women’s Day? Did it inspire hope?
