It's part of its new campaign to pressure companies to add more women to their boards.

The money manager said it would vote against boards if a company failed to take steps to increase its number of members who are women.

Lori Heiner told Business Insider: "One of the most iconic images on Wall Street is the charging bull. So the idea of having a female sort of stand against the bull or stand up to the bull just struck us as a very clever but also creative and engaging way to make that statement. Even though it's a little girl, her stance is one of determination, forwardness, and being willing to challenge and take on the status quo."

The statue has drawn huge crowds with people delightedly taking snaps of their little girls in front of the bull.
