Status of Women in Game of Thrones, Books vs TV series (Genderswapping). The 3rd video in an ongoing series on "Gender and Sexuality in Game of Thrones". This video discusses the Status of Women in the TV show compared to the source books, the A Song of Ice and Fire novels. From a societal level, I point out how the TV show has omitted showing female political leaders, and has even *outright genderswapped female rulers into male ones*. I also give a brief summation of "The Smurfette Principle" and "Strong Female Characters" Tropes which are being heavily used by the TV show. I also discuss Dorne in this video (after leaving it out from others) to discuss how the TV show dropped any mention that it's the only one of the Seven Kingdoms which follows gender-blind inheritance and women are considered equal to men.
