Personally this discussion has always been close to my heart. Some may argue that ASOIAF is more “realistic” for the time period in which it is set but what does that really mean for a fantasy series? Nothing at all. I find it very difficult to see the point of the assault that happens in ASOIAF, whereas the power held by women in WOT, by their own right, and the willing support given them by the men is something very interesting to behold. The ceremonies in many of the cultures in WOT surrounding women, I personally happen to find very empowering (Aes Sedai ceremonies, Aiel ceremonies) and a celebration of what it means to be a woman. While the series can be comical sometimes with all the sniffing, arm folding and braid-tugging, and all the talk of impressive bosoms, i have never felt that it has been a problem to the way women are seen in the world of Randland. Any thoughts?
I have finished aMoL after two days of absorption. Definitely one of the better paced books and I’m happy with the ending. Posting will resume once I catch my breath. Thanks for waiting everyone!
