Hello

Is the term "No wonder why" familiar?
JUST checking my exam notes (history commentary)

Thank you

    No, it's not an "expression" or a set phrase. But in some contexts it's a possible arrangement of words. We would have to know the context in order to tell you.

    No wonder why some women were very active in the anti-slavery movement, they could not stand backwards after all the efforts they provided during the War.

    I don't think we say it with "why." "No wonder some women were . . . " sounds better to me, although rather informal. (I don't know what "stand backwards" is intended to mean here; you may want to start another thread about that.)
