Sexual Violence and Game of Thrones

Many of us at RALIANCE, like millions of others around the world have been glued to the TV the last five weeks watching the final season of Game of Thrones. In episode four, an interaction between Sansa and the Hound and several other scenes caused us to reflect how sexual violence has been portrayed over the years in the show 

Two of our team members, Ebony Tucker and Brian Pinero, sat down and talked about it. Is it necessary in telling a story like Game of Thrones  to include sexual violence? What can we learn from how writers have written about it over eight seasons? Join us over the next three days and listen to their conversation.
