- Early life
Cristina gallach under secretary general for communications and public information
Cristina Gallach was born in 1960 in Spain. She obtained an undergraduate degree in Journalism from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and a Master's degree in International Affairs from New York's Columbia University.
Gallache worked as a journalist for the publication El Periódico, and the news agencies Avui and TVE Barcelona.
Gallach has extensive experience in the field of communications. She has held several high-level positions and has worked as a spokesperson for the Spanish Government, the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
Gallach, Wonder Woman actresses Gal Gadot and Lynda Carter, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, and DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson appeared at the United Nations on October 21, 2016, the 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Wonder Woman, to mark the character's designation by the United Nations as its "Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls". The gesture was intended to raise awareness of UN Sustainable Development Goal No. 5, which seeks to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by 2030. The decision was met with protests from UN staff members who stated in their petition to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon that the character is "not culturally encompassing or sensitive", and served to objectify women. As a result, the character was stripped of the designation, and the project ended December 16.
