A Guide To The Incredible Women On “Game Of Thrones”
If you're anything like us, you're balls deep obsessed with "Game of Thrones" right now. We can't get enough of this show, and all of the incredible female characters on it. And while I happen to be particularly partial to Daenerys and her wee little dragon babies, it seems there are plenty of strong women to go around. And that's what's so liberating and exciting about watching the show. There's just so many of them! As Salon writer Nina Shen Rastogi notes, "'Game of Thrones' persuasively demonstrates why some of us are always yammering on about the need for increased representation of women (and minorities) on television: Through the relatively simple process of upping the numbers, the burden on any individual woman magically lightens. No single character in 'Game of Thrones' has to be the show’s final word on womanhood, and that’s a freeing prospect."
