2. Cersei Lannister – This pick is a little bit more mysterious. Cersei Lannister is the evil queen bitch on her way to claim the throne, so why would she be a strong female character? Well, she’s complex as hell. Cersei is straight up mean and ruthless, she does exactly whatever it takes to get what she wants. Crazy, right? But wait…don’t the men do the same thing? Cersei is a woman trying to make it to the top in a man’s world. In one episode, she vocalizes how from day one she wanted to be able to be with the men and discuss important affairs but was always dismissed on account of her gender. Constant belittling is annoying but maybe not reason enough to have executed some of her plans. However, she has goals and ambitions, reasons for her anger, and an unstoppable will to go on. All of these things maker her a well-written, strong character. She’s on the list!
