That is something I have enjoyed seeing as well @LadySkinsFan

 

the story bucks traditions in a lot of ways and that is one of them. Don't forget about Yara becoming leader of the iron islands as well. 

Not really much of a tradition anymore, women in powerful positions is the norm for TV.  As it should be.  That said they went too far trying to upgrade the female characters. 

 

Yara is better in the books where she is a self serving piece of **** that doesn't care about her brother.  It makes more sense for her to be that way, she's a slaving pirate after all and he is her rival.  The reason her father favors her is because she's her fathers daughter.  In the show though, the poor dear endured her cruel father and tried desperately to save her brother whom she loves.  Why?  Because TV writers love that cheeseball ****.

So my sister was in Rwanda doing some marketing and promotion work for a project sponsored by Women for Women International.  She sent me this, which she said Game of Thrones fans might appreciate...

 

 

Do they have a catch all term in the Kiryawandan language for "poor, stupid Sansa"?

Except Sansa seems to have developed some ovaries at the end of S6. She basically gives Littlefinger the finger when he reveals his audacious plan to capture the Iron Throne with Sansa by his side. That scene was priceless.  I'm looking forward to Littlefinger getting roasted by dragons.

Yara isn't on a throne yet as she and Theon took off, knowing that their uncle would kill them if they were around.

Technically, she is a rebel leader. Remember, she lost the Kingsmoot and stole the Ironborn Navy with Theon.

Why do you think it should be this way? I enjoy watching people who are worthy to lead or unworthy and fail, regardless of gender. 

 

But in regards to this season, I don't think the trend will be reversed so much as there will just be less women in power period. Cersei's clock is ticking.
