Wonder Woman 1984 actor Gal Gadot has named Shaheen Bagh activist Bilkis Bano, aka Bilkis Dadi, one of her "personal Wonder Women" of 2020. The actor posted a series of photos of women whom she has been inspired by on Instagram with Bilkis Dadi among them. "Saying farewell to 2020, with all my love to #MyPersonalWonderWomen Some are those closest to me - my family, my friends - some are inspiring women I've loved discovering, and some are expectional women I hope to meet in the future," she wrote in the caption.

Gadot had also posted a picture of Bilkis Dadi as an Instagram story, but later deleted it possibly because she had erroneously captioned it, "The 82-year-old activist fighting for women’s equality in India showed me it’s never too late to fight for what you believe in."

The octogenarian was the face of the months-long protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) at Delhi's Shaheen Bagh neighbourhood. She was also named by Time magazine as one of the most influential people of 2020.
