Gal Gadot: Feminist Icon | HuffPost Entertainment: Gal Gadot is the feminist hero we need.
She is an unapologetic racist Zionist, supporter of the brutal Israeli occupation regime in Palestine. Not a role model!
Well, she is beautiful and the movie was good and she was good in it. However, I'm not sure she's a role model. I mean, she did serve in the Israeli army, a military machine the oppresses the Palestinian people. I can't say that's too terribly heroic.
"Gal Gadot's family came to Palestine as colonisers and conquerors. Like most Zionists, her parents changed their name from Greenstein to "indigenise" themselves, but that does not change who they are. Gadot's position of privilege in life is predicated on the despair, displacement, robbery, and destruction of the indigenous society where she lives. For that, she offers neither shame nor apology, but rather, pride.
Discussions of feminism around this film have sidelined this crucial fact about her. They've omitted the actor's cheering of wanton killing, which took the lives of 547 children in less than two months. Instead, the focus is on her impossible physical proportions. This is just another way that the destruction of our society is normalised.
But make no mistake. Zionism cannot reconcile with feminism, and such antiquated imperial feminism belongs to another era, when feminists fought for the right to vote, but only for white women."
