International Women’s Day 2017: One little girl challenging stereotypes

International Women’s Day was sparked with more excitement this year, when a statue of a little girl was unveiled. She is staring down the charging bull on Wall Street in New York.

The little girl is a symbol of the hopes for women of the future; they want to empower the young girls now, in order to give them the self-confidence to know that they can achieve anything in this male dominated world.

Many who have seen the statue in person have said it has struck a chord with them, as it has made them realise how much we need to value our young women, and ensure they know their worth.
