Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot took to Instagram to lavish praise on 16-year-old Greta Thunberg describing her as a “Woman of Wonder.”
Gadot shared a picture of Thunberg giving a speech in front of Congress about climate change. She wrote, “Sometimes it takes a force of nature to change human nature. Greta Thunberg you are a true Woman of Wonder and I thank you for that.”
In the speech Gadot praised, Sweden’s Thunberg declared the world is in the middle of a climate crisis and asked for unity in solving in order that kids can return to school.
“I also have a dream: that governments, political parties and corporations grasp the urgency of the climate and ecological crisis and come together despite their differences – as you would in an emergency – and take the measures required to safeguard the conditions for a dignified life for everybody on earth.
Because then – we millions of school striking youth – could go back to school.”
She would go on to declare that the climate crisis she mentions is an “existential emergency.”
“I have a dream that the people in power, as well as the media, start treating this crisis like the existential emergency it is. So that I could go home to my sister and my dogs. Because I miss them.”
Gadot would not be the only celebrity to heap praise on Thunberg. Alyssa Milano described Thunberg as a “warrior of the human spirit.” (Related: Alyssa Milano Calls for “Sex Strike”)
This fear and pain is real. And it’s gut-wrenching.
No generation should have to deal with inaction from leadership.
We are blessed to have this warrior of the human spirit.
