Laura Lyster-Mensh email@example.com a local author and podcaster, is searching for the Fearless Girls 2020 artist(s) to interview them, anonymously or pseudonymously, for a podcast she hosts called the Auldton Laughing Club Podcast.

I would love to find others who are watching for these pieces, and to identify others, and if possible the artist(s).”
So far, protest sculptures have been spotted at 5th and Constitution, NE; 6th and Independence, SE; 7th and East Capitol; 4th and East Capitol; 2nd and E Streets, SE; and 3rd and Independence, SE.
