Gal Gadot, better known as Hollywood's Wonder Woman, recently shared a series of pictures on her Instagram acknowledging women and young girls from different walks of life across the globe. Seen in Wonder Woman 1984, Gal shared the names of people who are the real 'wonder women'. One of them was the octogenarian Bilkis Dadi, who became the face of anti-CAA protest in Shaheen Bagh in 2020. 

Gal, on Instagram, wrote, "Saying farewell to 2020, with all my love to #MyPersonalWonderWomen  Some are those closest to me - my family, my friends - some are inspiring women I’ve loved discovering, and some are exceptional women I hope to meet in the future. Together, we can do wonders! Share your own wonder women with me "

Apart from this, the 35-year-old Israel-born actress shared Bilkis Dadi's picture on her Instagram stories and wrote, "The 82-year-old activist fighting for women's equality in India showed me it's never too late to fight for what you believe in." On learning that the information shared is wrong, Gal deleted the story. 

However, trolls were quick to point out Gal's mistake. Netizens trolled the Wonder Woman actress for the blunder. One user wrote, "Coming from a woman who was trolled by jihadis for being Israeli and had served in the military is now appreciating Shaheen bhaagh daadi. Sheer hypocrisy. Appreciation is okay but appreciating someone for something they didn’t do, good way to promote your new movie Gal Gadot." The other said, "According to Gal Gadot, Bilkis Dadi was fighting for women equality. That is why I say Westerners are dumb."
