Wonder Woman's win was not the only highlight from the Critics Choice Awards, with regard to Gadot. The 32-year-old moved the audience with her inspiring #SeeHer acceptance speech.
The actress noted that through her career she wanted to play women characters who were strong, independent and real, and Wonder Woman provided her with the best chance. "She's full of heart, strength, compassion, and forgiveness. She sees wrong that must be made right. She takes action when everyone around her is idle. She commands the attention of the world, and in doing so, she sets a positive example for humanity," she said, Entertainment Weekly reported.
She added, "I want to share this award with all the women and men who stand for what's right, standing for those who can't stand or speak for themselves."
"And I promise, my commitment to all of you is that I will never be silenced. And we will continue to band together to make strides uniting for equality," she said referring to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement.
