Sen. Elizabeth Warren Tweets Picture with Wall Street 'Fearless Girl' Statue

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a long time critic of Wall Street, tweeted a picture Tuesday of herself posing alongside the Fearless Girl statue on Wall Street with the caption “Fight like a girl.”

The statue was commissioned last month by State Street Global Advisors, a Wall Street firm and 2.5 trillion dollar fund manager, in an effort to call “on companies to take concrete steps to increase gender diversity on their boards."

While New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio didn’t think Fearless Girl could ask for a better role model, the rest of Twitter was quick to point out the irony of Senator Warren posing with a statue commissioned by a Wall Street firm.
