Wonder Woman leading lady, Israeli actress and model Gal Gadot, took to Instagram on Friday to denounce the phenomena of bullying and sexual harassment following the countless allegations that have emerged against Jewish Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of assaulting, harassing and raping numerous actresses.

Gadot, whose reprisal of the role of Princess Diana in the box office hit has garnered her the love of millions of movie-goers across the globe, used the social media platform to call against acts of violence targeting women.

"Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable! I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out," Gadot wrote in a picture of a black-and-white text she posted.

"Together we stand. We are all united in this time of change," she added.

Gadot's expression of solidarity with women who were victimized by men such as Weinstein comes as many other powerhouse actresses expressed their sympathy with their coworkers (such as Angelina Jolie, Gwenyth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale and Ashley Judd) who have all alleged that Weinstein attempted to assault them in some capacity over the years as they sought his insight or guidance.
