As if it hadn’t been clear enough throughout the past 10weeks, “Game of Thrones” made sure to punctuate its season six finale in a way that made it certain: this was the year of the woman.

Hands of the queen now exist and gender roles have been shattered, much to the delight of the Westerosi (or, in other words, us fans).
