Wonder Woman has been such a huge hit that it feels like everyone is clamoring to get to know its star, Gal Gadot, a little bit better these days. Along with being an actress, a mother, and a wife, Gadot is also a feminist. And there are tons of Gal Gadot quotes about feminism to prove it.
Obviously, the woman who plays Wonder Woman would be a feminist (or rather, should be), and Gadot doesn’t seem like the kind of person who does things halfway. It was about time the world got a Wonder Woman movie, too, and the fact that someone like Gadot was picked to play the lead just makes things that much more perfect.
Just in case you thought that women weren’t into superheroes or DC comic books (and why would you think that?), female fans came out in droves to see the Wonder Woman. The movie had what Variety described as a “massive” opening weekend — beating out Tom Cruise’s The Mummy with over $100 million worldwide. Warner Bros. distribution chief Jeff Goldstein said of the response to the film, “Globally this property has just resonated with fans. There’s something iconic about Diana and the story of Wonder Woman that’s hitting the zeitgeist perfectly.”
With its opening weekend, Wonder Woman is also slated to beat out other equally massive films like Iron Man and Thor, which are both led by men. Clearly, girl power is stronger than steel (or iron, at least).
Need more proof that the film is the perfect example of badass womanhood? Here are some examples of its lead actor, Gadot, proving she's the real deal, as far as cool, feminist power is concerned.
On Diana's Character
Wonder Woman is no shrinking violet, and Gadot knows that full well. She recently told AZ Central:
On Wanting To Play Strong Women
Gadot said in an interview with Refinery 29:
I'm pretty sure she found the perfect role, everyone.
On Being A Role Model
In the same Refinery 29 interview, Gadot said:
On Relating To Diana
The 32-year-old recently told Entertainment Weekly:
On Complicated Women
Gadot also told Entertainment Weekly that women, believe it or not, can be lots of things:
Diana has always been a role model for women, so it's really something to see someone who believes in Wonder Woman's feminist values bring her to life on the big screen. Bless you, Gal Gadot, forever and ever.
