When NYC鈥檚 鈥淔earless Girl鈥 statue popped up, facing down Wall Street鈥檚 bull with a determined simplicity, we fell in love with the bold (and totally timely) art. Now, it鈥檚 been announced that the 鈥淔earless Girl鈥 will be standing her ground for another year.

Originally only scheduled to stay in her spot on the Department of Transportation鈥檚 property until April 2, The Daily News is now reporting that Mayor Bill de Blasio has decided that the installation created by artist Kristen Visbal be given a long-term permit, allowing it to remain unmoved until February 2018.

鈥淚n her short time here, the 鈥楩earless Girl鈥 has fueled powerful conversations about women in leadership and inspired so many,鈥 the Mayor said in a statement. 鈥淣ow, she鈥檒l be asserting herself and affirming her strength even after her temporary permit expires 鈥 a fitting path for a girl who refuses to quit.鈥

By the looks of it, fans of the piece will be more than a little pleased by this news鈥

Maybe my favorite moment so far with my #fearlessgirl #wrenthefearwrecker

Perhaps this fearless girl will become a permanent fixture, or even tour the country taking on other iconic spots with her bronzed bravery.
