There are a lot of truly evil people on Game of Thrones, yet the show’s most hated character isn’t the sadistic Joffrey or flay-happy Ramsay. It’s Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), whose biggest offense seems to be that she’s a teenage girl — and a girly one at that.
The polar opposite to her sister Arya, Sansa embodies everything a young Westerosi noblewoman should be. She loves lemon cakes, fairy tales and honestly believes in happily ever after (or at least she used to). But when people celebrate Game of Thrones for its depiction of empowering female characters, they typically point to Daenerys, Arya, Brienne and Cersei, all of whom actively fight against traditional ideals of womanhood and exhibit characteristics that are often associated with men. But where’s the praise of Sansa’s strength? No, she doesn’t rely on dragons, a sword or aggression to get her way. She’s polite, kind and a feminine, but none of those things make her weak.
