Why the “Wonder Woman” film bears a positive feminist message, despite the criticism.

Why the “Wonder Woman” film bears a positive feminist message, despite the criticism.

The long-awaited Wonder Woman film was screened at the beginning of May. Finally, in the comics world, you have a strong and powerful woman as a main character!

However, the film did not come without controversy.

The criticism is a recurring one: female actors are constantly paid less than their male co-stars.

Gal Gadot (aka Wonder Woman herself) was reportedly paid only $300,000. Now, while some of us would not mind receiving a $300,000 cheque, the underlying problem of the Hollywood industry Gender Pay gap is a common one (Jennifer Lawrence has spoken about it too – check here).

Additional criticism has spurred from the language used by film critic David Edelstein when reviewing the film. Edelstein received a lot of backlash following his description of Gadot as having found the "perfect blend of superbabe-in-the-woods innocence and mouthiness," when playing Wonder Woman.

 

Gal Gadot is a babe, that’s undeniable. But there is more to her than her looks for sure.

Generally, the film itself is a celebration of powerful women: from the fictional character being a badass Amazonian beauty, to the fact that it was directed by an (excellent) female director.

 

We love the film, we love Gal Gadot and we love the message it sends!
