All is not fair in gender nudity.
If you’ve been keeping up with Game of Thrones, then you know just how many jaw-dropping moments happen nearly every episode. The show has become a huge phenomenon across the globe, and fans can hardly wait to see what kind of plot twists are in store on the fantasy series each week. For many, the show pushes the limits not only because of how graphic and explicit it is, but because there is a lot of nudity incorporated as well.
One major actress on the series recently spoke out about her beliefs that nudity on the show is not being spread out equally between the male and female cast members. She released a pretty passionate statement and is now fighting for increased nudity ‘equality’ for the remainder of Game of Thrones.

Emilia Clarke Speaks Out
The actress has done multiple controversial nude scenes while portraying her role of Daenerys Targaryen on the series. While doing an interview with Glamour, the actress revealed that while she does enjoy the comments from women praising her role as a strong woman, she wishes that there were an even amount of male nudity as well.
Balancing the Scales
Despite doing a controversial marital rape scene in Season 1, not to mention many other nude scenes that were nonconsensual for her character, Emilia is happy with her character’s portrayal and feels that other women are empowered by her. Though she doesn’t mind her nude scenes, she would like to see the male characters stripping down more often as well
Clarke told Glamour Magazine, “I love that so many women watch the show. If you look at Game of Thrones on face value—blood, tits, dragons, swearwords—you’re like, ‘Oh, this must be for guys.’ But if you take that away, the story lines are fascinating depictions of the struggle for power. And women are in on that conversation!”
