ABSTRACT
The article discusses aspects of the 2017 superhero film "Wonder Woman" directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot. The author is critical on the feminist aspect of articles in both the print and online edition of "The Forward" newspaper, which he says mostly featured the question of whether Gadot can be considered white given her Israeli or Jewish background. He also says that the setting in World War I is one of the oddest aspects of the film.
