Look Out Melbourne, Fearless Girl Is Coming To Town

She faced off against the Charging Bull on Wall Street, now Fearless Girl will take her place in Federation Square.

While silent and just over a metre tall, the girl statue makes a big statement.

She's become a symbol of the fight for gender equality and is now making her way to Melbourne.

The bronze, ponytailed statue will stand in the iconic Federation Square this week, ahead of International Women's Day on March 8.

She's being brought to Australia by Lawyers of Maurice Blackburn and industry super funds HESTA and Cbus in an effort to keep the issue of gender equality front and centre.

“Fearless Girl will be a reminder to Australian workplaces that we must keep up the fight for gender equality -- delivering equality that changes our workplaces for the better and we must act on this now for future generations of women," Maurice Blackburn CEO Jacob Varghese said.

The statue will remain in Fed Square for two years before finding a more permanent home somewhere in Australia.
