'Game Of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams Claps Back At Sexist Headline

Shade. 🐸☕️

Maisie Williams is best known for playing Arya Stark on HBO's hit drama "Game of Thrones," but she's also outspoken and unabashedly feminist.

The 19-year-old actress had a few words for The Daily Mail on Monday, after the site ran a story about her with the headline, "Unveiled: Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams goes braless in sheer lace dress and quirky headpiece at charity masquerade ball."

Williams tweeted the sexist headline, with the perfect alternative: 

The fact that the headline emphasized what Williams was wearing (especially the fact that it was sheer) rather than what she was doing is just further proof of the ridiculous preoccupation we have with women's bodies. 

Cheers to Williams for gracefully calling out the absurdity of the headline, and for raising awareness about an important charity
