Hijabers Asal Palestina Tolak Penghargaan Karena Gal Gadot

Hanivamagazine.com – Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, hijabers asal Palestina-Yordania, dikabarkan menolak dengan tegas penghargaan dari brand kosmetik, Revlon. Jurnalis sekaligus Founder media muslim, MuslimGirl ini padahal masuk dalam daftar 25 orang yang meraih ‘The Changemaker Award’.

Amani menolak karena pihak Revlon mengangkat Gal Gadot sebagai brand ambassador untuk kampanye ‘Live Boldly’. Sosok ‘Wonder Woman’ itu diketahui berdarah Israel dan pernah mengungkap ketidaksukaannya terhadap warga Palestina.

Dukungan Gal Gadot terhadap serangan Israel bertentangan dengan prinsip dan gerakan yang dibuat MuslimGirl, media yang ia jalani ini. “Dukungannya yang vokal terhadap Israel Defense Forces (IDF) bertentangan dengan nilai dan moral MuslimGirl,” ujarnya.

Banyak media yang menyebut Gal Gadot mendukung pengeboman Gaza di tahun 2014. Pengeboman ini menelan korban sekitar 1,400 warga sipil.

This is why I couldn't accept @revlon's Changemaker Award celebrating their new #liveboldy campaign featuring @gal_gadot. It means so much to me when @muslimgirl's work is recognized and elevated in spaces from which we've been traditionally excluded. But that's what makes it even more important at this moment to elevate and stand up for ALL women and girls. This shouldn't have to be said, but we can't accept role models that support the oppression of women and girls in other parts of the world. Especially after we just celebrated MLK Jr. and as we approach the one year anniversary of the Women's March, we all have an URGENT obligation to talk back, speak our truths, and insist on the right side of history. The personal is political — yes, even, and ESPECIALLY, when it comes to beauty — and I don't know about you, but my feminism is inclusive of ALL women and nothing less. That's what being a changemaker means to me.

“Kita tidak bisa menerima ‘role model’ perempuan yang mendukung penindasan terhadap perempuan lainnya di tempat lain,” tegas Amani di Instagramnya. Suaranya ini cukup lantang terdengar, karena followersnya cukup banyak yaitu 46,2 ribu.

Dengan langkahnya itu banyak netizen yang turut ikut mendukung dan tak sedikit pula yang menentang sikapnya itu.
