She’s not FACING the bull by accident

Some Feminists Missed the Point of Wall Street’s “Fearless Girl” Statue

She Stands in Beautiful Opposition.

My fellow feminists are at their most self-defeating when, in the frenzy to analyze layers of meaning, they mistake mountains for anthills; failing to see the context as it relates to the big picture. “The ‘Fearless Girl’ statue sums up what’s wrong with feminism today” writes Cara Marsh Sheffler for The Guardian. Its accompanying fretpiece is a parody of feminists who have microscopes permanently glued to their eyeballs and haven’t looked at the proverbial forest in years. Its thesis doesn’t even have much to do with the statue at all, but is an excellent treatise on how badly people can misread into art when they want to.
