vacillates between female empowerment and sexist objectification. But it recently turned a feminist corner with Daenerys asserting her power.
“While many women orchestrate machinations behind the scenes, no woman is boldly challenging patriarchy to rule. Except for one. Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen.
…Not only is she a woman leader, her very existence challenging the status quo. But Daenerys openly questions and challenges patriarchal norms. She refuses to abide by societal gender limitations mandating men must rule. She’s determined to forge a different path. Rather than follow in the footsteps of leaders embodying toxic masculinity, she’s determined to rule through respect, kindness and fairness — not through intimidation or fear. Daenerys refuses to enslave people. She wants to emancipate them
…She’s wielding justice, crushing oppression and protecting the weak.”
Dany tosses the whip of oppression. Mic drop.
