Gal Gadot does not think Wonder Woman will ever allow anyone use their power to sexually harass her, regardless of the circumstance.
For some times since many actresses came aloft and accused film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment, the filmmaking industry has been working toward abating this.
Actors, actresses, networks, and studios all desist from people who have been accused or have accepted making use of their stance to sexually harass – both men and women.
Further to punishment on sexual predators and actually blacklisting them from further productions, the industry has started to take necessary steps to avoid such harassment from occurring again.
And the negotiation of people in the top rank of the industry taking chance of their positions has gotten to many productions, even Justice League.
Seeing that Wonder Woman is a source of motivation for women (and men) worldwide, it is rational for them in the quest to know how the superheroine would act in a stance that has to do with sexual harassment.
A question was thrown to Gal Gadot on how Wonder Woman would react to undesired sexual proposals in Justice League‘s press junket in London, and Gadot gave a simple-yet-appropriate reply for her character: “I do not think Wonder Woman will ever allow anybody use his (or her) power against her desire. Her desire is very firm and so [is] she.”
Directors and producers’ list – also studio executives – who have a record of using their positions to make unwanted sexual proposals towards subordinates, continues to increase.
The recent person to be charged of sexual harassment, from many people, is Kevin Spacey. The actor tried to divert the attention by pronouncing himself gay, but his efforts prove abortive.
Netflix has a long time broke their ties with the actor, also their flagship series House of Cards, banned the actor’s instant removal from the series.
Of course, Spacey’s recent accusations is not the only one. Many industry insiders, from Brett Ratner to James Toback, are being accused of different kinds of sexual assault and harassment, with few, like Jeremy Piven, refusing their accusations.
Gadot’s comments on the way Wonder Woman would treat sexual harassment are awesome and they may motivate those who have decided not to make their experiences known come forward, however there is no doubt that Hollywood needs redeem its image and hold those responsible for their act.
The Academy, with other organisations and guilds, is already in the verge of implementing new codes of conduct, however more still has to be done.
