20 badass quotes from the women of ‘Game of Thrones’ because dragons aren’t the only ones who breathe hot fire

If I’m being perfectly honest, I watch Game of Thrones for the incredible female characters that continue to challenge their male-dominated society. I watch tor the warrior that is Brienne of Tarth, who defies gender expectations in her quest for justice. For Daenerys Targaryen, who overcame her life as a child bride to become a ruler of nations. For Olenna Tyrell, whose biting wit is something to aspire to at any age.

If you’re feeling like fighting the patriarchy is getting a little daunting, let the ladies of GoT give you a bit of a pep talk before going into battle.
