A #fearless girl stands up to a Charging Bull in New York's Wall Street, sending a strong message of female empowerment and freedom for International Women’s day.

This, as thousands of women on Twitter took offence at #Donald Trump's Woman's Day message that seemed to contradict previous statements he'd given about women. "I have tremendous respect for women and the many roles they serve that are vital to the fabric of our society and our economy," the President wrote on Wednesday morning.

Women responded with screen grabs of his previous insults to women and ridiculed him with his bias.

These included such gems as:

"@POTUS No you don't. You're a p***y grabber. Commenting on International Women's Day has to be your most hypocritical tweet ever."

Another Twitter user asked Trump to remember that time he told his friend "re: women "You have to treat 'em like shit"?"

And there was a reminder about how the President of the United States of America had said this before the election took place: "I moved on her like a bitch. [...] And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy."

But back to the Fearless Girl.

The ad agency McCann New York together with investment firm State Street Global Advisors installed the sculpture, called #The Fearless Girl, in Manhattan’s Bowling Green Park.

The girl stares down the bull because she has no fear and believes she's she equal to a bull.

AdWeek reports the stunt is in part of the campaign by SSGA to highlight that "companies with women in top positions perform better financially.”

The Bull, which was originally guerrilla art that surfaced in 1989 and that residents petitioned the city to keep, says a lot about the gender imbalance and discrimination in the business world.

These imbalances are reflected in Trump's new administration today, where there is a lack of women (compared to Obama's office) and where, as Sean Spicer claimed today, women are expected to show up at work.

This remark was aimed at the #A Day Without a Woman demonstration that was taking place on Wednesday to call attention to far reaching women's issues that have been highlighted since Trump has come to office, since he has tried to abolish Planned Parenthood and other women or minorities' support services.

Issues such as the wage gap, defunding of Planned Parenthood and other forms of discrimination are part of the A Day Without A Woman charter. Organizers want women to take part in the protest by to taking the day off work and avoid shopping, unless it’s at women-owned small businesses. Those who can't take part are asked to wear red.

Some protests took place in Washington, and Manhattan and other places around the country.

The nationwide demonstration was a test of whether anti-Trump sentiment can be parlayed into a sustained political movement like the #Women's March on Washington a few months ago.

The event, taking place in conjunction with several women’s right groups, is the latest in a series of strikes or boycotts that protest the Trump administration.

And it seemed the message was getting broadcast loud and clear. In Providence, Rhode Island, an official said seven women clerks and one deputy court administrator were absent, which then led the municipal court there to close.

“That the court had to shut down in their absence, I think, is telling,” said Michaela Antunes, the press person for Providence City Council.
