Israeli actress Gal Gadot blasted the international community for its silence about rape and sexual violence that Israeli women experienced by the hands of Hamas terrorists during the deadly massacre that took place in southern Israel on Oct. 7.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, the Wonder Woman 1984 star said “the world has failed the women of Oct. 7” and called for the immediate release of every female hostage seized by Hamas during the terror group’s onslaught.

“We say we believe women. Stand with women. Speak out for women,” she wrote in her statement. “Within hours of the Oct. 7 attack, the first blood-chilling video emerged of Shani Louk being paraded naked and defiled by her proud assailants. Yet two months later women are still hostage to these rapists and the world has failed to call this situation what it is: an urgent emergency that demands a decisive response.”
