One of the world’s most famous statues got a feminist update on March 7, just in time for International Women’s Day.

The morning before the holiday, workers for State Street Global Advisors installed a bronze statue of a young girl across from the famous Wall Street charging bull.

The bull was erected near the New York Stock exchange in 1989 by Italian-born artist Arturo Di Modica. It has since become something of an icon for capitalism, even making its way into the Occupy Wall Street campaign.

The global asset manager added its own addition to the statue in recognition of its new gender equality campaign.

State Street Global Advisors now aims to elect more women to its boards — and will even vote against boards that fail to do so, according to Business Insider. A 2015 study found that only 10% of all US fund managers are women.

"One of the most iconic images on Wall Street is the charging bull,” Lori Heinel, State Street's deputy global chief investment officer, told Business Insider. “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.”

The statue quickly caused a stir with tourists and passersby.

A strong girl is always a star! Happy Day of the International Woman ;)

Some women even dressed up for the occasion, sporting the pink "pussy" hats popularized by the January women's march.

Thousands of women sported the pink, knitted hats at marches the day after Donald Trump's inauguration. Among other things, they symbolize the protest against Trump's derogatory comments about women.

By the next day, the statue even hat a pink hat of her own.

Hopefully her powerful message lives on, even after March 8 comes and goes.
