There has long been a big issue with gender inequality in Hollywood and it will probably be many more years yet before we finally get to see men and women on an even keel, but it is good to see that there are finally some steps being taken to bring things around. Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot has been enjoying a rise in Hollywood in recent years and is one of the biggest stars in the business, and Gal has revealed how she was raised to believe in gender equality.
Gadot was chatting in the recent edition of the American Marie Claire magazine, when she told the publication, "My mom raised my sister and me to be confident women with aspirations. And I always felt capable. I'm not saying that I'm stronger than most men...but we all have the same brains and we can achieve the same things."
She added, "There's a long way to go until we can make gender a nonissue. I don't know if it'll ever happen. I'm hoping it will because life would be so much cooler and less complicated then. Also, for men, by the way. I don't enjoy conflict in my life. Unlike Wonder Woman, I'm not a fighter [but] I will fight for good."
Well Gal Gadot is certainly doing her part in trying to bring this gender inequality to an end, by playing one of the biggest female characters to ever hit the big screen. Gal stars in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, which will hit the big screen on June 1 in the UK and June 2 in the US.
