Wonder Woman is set to become a UN honorary ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls.
Gal Gadot, who played the Amazonian princess in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Lynda Carter, star of the 1970s TV series, will be present at the New York event on 21 October, marking the first meeting of the two most well-known Wonder Woman actresses.
The upcoming role is in support of the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goal No. 5, which is a mission to “achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls”.
Created by William Marston, his wife, Elizabeth Marston, and artist H. G. Peter, Wonder Woman is set to appear in Justice League and her own standalone film in the next couple of years.
