'Game Of Thrones' Has Always Been About The Women & Here's 11 Reasons Why

You can tack this onto the list of things that we all knew without it ever having to be pointed out. But, nonetheless, it’s still nice to hear it and have it validated. You see, Us Weekly interviewed some of the Game of Thrones cast and they let us in on some info that may or may not make you go “Well, duh” in the nicest, most sincere way possible. The site relays that, “Emilia Clarke, Maisie Williams, and more leading ladies of HBO's Game of Thrones have declared Season 5 "the year of the women." Which, is super exciting although obvious, because let’s be real, that declaration was probably only a glimpse into what’s coming.

But, even better than that, is what Us Weekly goes on to say.

"'It is always the year of the women,’ Conleth Hill, who plays Lord Varys, elaborated to Us Weekly last month at the event. ‘You have all strong women on the show.'"

Clap it up for Hill, ladies and gentleman. Because this guy clearly knows what this show is all about. In fact, I am so enamored with him and his statement that I feel the need to prove his point. Check out the various reasons below that it truly always has been the year of the women on Game of Thrones.
