Gal Gadot sizzles in sequin jumpsuit on Jimmy Fallon

Gadot received the prestigious #SeeHer honor from her Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins for challenging female stereotypes not only on-screen but also in the real world.

The Israeli star told the audience at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica she'd found the ideal role of a strong, independent woman in Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman.

The 32-year-old accepted the award for Best Action Movie on behalf of the entire Wonder Woman team, and used her time on stage to call for more female-led and directed films in Hollywood following the success of the DC smash.

The #SeeHer campaign, started by the Association of National Advertisers past year, aims to "push boundaries" and "recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape".

Gal, who rocked a plunging metallic gown at the awards ceremony, said: 'Throughout my career, I was always asked to describe my dream role.

Gadot continued: "She's full of heart, strength, compassion, and forgiveness. We wanted her to be universal, to be an inspiration to all people all around the world, and our plan was to make sure we didn't give too much attention to the fact that she's a woman".

The Israeli actress then referenced the #MeToo movement, which saw women of Hollywood wear black in protest of sexual harassment in the industry at the Golden Globes last weekend.

'When I started acting, there were very few female led movies and even fewer female directors. Excluding Wonder Woman, the films in the DCEU have earned an average of 37% positive reviews on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes, which tallies critical reviews and assigns them a positive ("Fresh") or negative ("Rotten") rating. There were eight other films in [the] top 100 which were directed by females. When Wonder Woman won for Best Action Movie, Jenkins heard the not-so-sweet strains of cut-off music.

Gal said, "The whole process of making this film inspired me and I hope it inspires others".

The actress said that she wanted to dedicate the award to all the men and women who stood up for what's right and took a stand for those who were unable to stand or speak for themselves. "And I promise, my commitment to all of you is that I will never be silenced". Both Jenkins and Gadot are on board to return for Wonder Woman 2, which is scheduled to hit theaters November 1, 2019.
