We can’t wait until Season 7 of Game of Thrones premieres tonight. Gwendoline Christie’s GoT character Brienne of Tarth is one of the best characters on television right now. (And supremely under appreciated, in our humble opinion). So we trust her opinion on basically anything, but especially when it comes to GoT‘s portrayal of women.

When you take stock of GoT‘s women, you can see her point. We get to watch characters like Daenerys and Sansa come into their power, growing from meek to strong. Also, women like Melisandre and Margaery have visions for their lives and go to great lengths to execute them. And of course, there’s Cersei, who is one of the most fully-fledged villains currently on TV.
