'GoT is not sexist'

Thursday, March 31, 2016

“Game of Thrones" often gets slammed for its depiction of women, but actress Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the series, says the anti-feminist spin given to the show is not true.

Clarke's evolution from bullied sister to mother of dragons and a queen has really been remarkable on the show and the actress says, the allegations trouble the show's team because they have some of the strongest female parts in television.

"There's so much controversy. Yet, that's what's beautiful about GoT, 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. It shows the range that happens to women, and ultimately portrays that women are not only equal, but have a lot of strength.''
