April 24th is coming… And the Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke, is getting the world all riled up before the highly anticipated season 6 premiere. She has had enough of her show being called anti-feminist. While Game of Thrones does depict women poorly, it is important to remember this fantasy series is based on MEDIEVAL times.
“There’s so much controversy. Yet that’s what’s beautiful about Game of Thrones – it’s depiction of women in so many different stages of development. There are women depicted as sexual tools, women who have zero rights, women who are queens but only to a man, and then there are women who are literally unstoppable and as powerful as you can possibly imagine. So it pains me to hear people taking Thrones out of context with anti-feminist spin – because you can’t do that about this show. It shows the range that happens to women, and ultimately shows women are not only equal, but have a lot of strength.”
