The 12 Best Girl Power Moments on ‘Game of Thrones’

Game of Thrones has some of the fiercest females on TV. Never underestimate a woman with pet dragons or a little girl with a sword. The upcoming season 5 promises even more kickass moments from Daenerys, Arya, et al. In the newly released trailer, when Varys tells Tyrion the kind of ruler the kingdom needs, Tyrion replies, “Good luck finding him.” To which Varys says, “Who said anything about him?” Our thoughts exactly. Let’s look back at all the moments these women proved their strength. We haven’t yelled “Girl power!” this much since the Spice Girls.
