Wonder Woman fans want to know why Gal Gadot has got shaved armpits

While the trailers for the Gal Gadot led film have so far been met with praise, the latest ‘origin’ trailer has caused outrage from certain sectors of the internet.  At around the 1.40 mark, the actor raises her arms, exposing her armpit to the audience.


“Watched the new Wonder Woman trailer,” tweeted one person, “Should we start the ‘why does she shave her armpits?’ discussion now, or wait until it’s released?”

Considering she’s presented as a feminist hero who fights the patriarchy, it seems unlikely that she would feel obliged to shave her pits because society deemed it necessary. By the way, in the comics the Diana always shaved her armpit.
