On the 75th anniversary of Wonder Woman’s first appearance, Gadot, fellow Wonder Woman actress Lynda Carter, DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, and United Nations Under-Secretary-General Cristina Gallach appeared at the United Nations to mark the character’s designation by the UN as its “Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls.”

The gesture was made to promote UN Sustainable Development Goal 5, which aims to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by 2030. UN staff members objected to the decision, claiming that the figure is “not culturally comprehensive or sensitive” and serves to objectify women in a petition to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
