Wonder Woman Smashes Gender Norms While Battling Film Ban
Importance of films like Wonder Woman and why this ban began
A group of seven girls are gathered around the playground one Tuesday morning. They were playing during recess, enwrapped in fantasy and innocents. The big problem for the day: who could be Wonder Woman in the group? With all of them wanting to be the powerful superhero, they needed a solution; said Lady Jamil Kharrazi.
The amazons, an all-female race created by Zeus to protect mankind, were to become their choice and together they would fight. The positive representation in Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman has made this character a role model for young girls. However, some countries have banned the film particularly because of Gal Gadot. Their excuses are said to be her over-sexualization (to which they joked about in the film) but the truth may be found in her homeland.
