Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones gets a lot of criticism for how it treats women, but the world of the show is pretty brutal for everyone involved. Women are at least allowed to be as murderous and ambitious as the men, and some truly stand out as exemplary characters for their loyalty and commitment to each other in such a vicious world. Brienne of Tarth is at the very top of that list, and her undying allegiance to her friend Lady Catelyn Stark felt like one of the only glimmers of hope in an otherwise bleak sixth season. When Brienne finally unites with Sansa and the two pledge their loyalty to each other, it felt like a victory for women everywhere. Or at least, everywhere in the Seven Kingdoms. The fact they were allowed to keep that bond until the series finale is just perfection.
