Gal Gadot steps up to the plate. In an Instagram post, the Wonder Woman singer expressed concern over the international community's silence regarding the sexual violence inflicted by Hamas terrorists on women captured following the October 7 attack in Israel.
"The world has let down the women of October 7. We claim that we are against rape and violence against women. That we will not let women be victimized and then silenced. We say that we believe in women, that we stand with women, that we speak on behalf of women," the American-Israeli actress first wrote on her social media.

She then recalled that the whole world had witnessed the sexual violence suffered by the hostages via the videos shared by Hamas, before regretting the lack of action and reaction in the face of these horrors.
It is addressed directly to the United Nations
"On October 7, the world witnessed in real time the violence perpetrated by Hamas. In the hours following the October 7 attack, the first chilling video surfaced showing Shani Louk, exposed naked and defiled by her proud attackers. Yet, two months later, women are still being held hostage by these rapists and the world has yet to put a name to this situation: an emergency that requires a decisive response," said Miss Israel 2004.

"This is the time for us, women and allies of women, to act," she asked the various international groups, including the UN, demanding loud and clear "that Hamas immediately release all women taken hostage." "These women cannot survive another moment of this horror," she said.
This is not the first time that the Fast & Furious actress has spoken out since the Hamas attack on October 7. Last month, she said she wanted to shine a light on the conflict in the world of American cinema by organizing a screening of a 47-minute video provided by the IDF spokesman.
In 2014, Gal Gadot had already created controversy by publicly displaying his support for the Israeli army on social networks.
