The seventh season of the popular TV show Game of Thrones is all set to premiere this coming month and leading up to build up for the season premiere the cast of the show is doing miniature promotional tours and interviews on their own. A similar kind of interview was taken from Emilia Clarke, who plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen aka Mother of Dragons in the popular HBO show. In an interview with Rolling Stones Magazine the actress also opened up about the hardships she has been dealing with for being a woman in the male-dominated film and TV industry and compared it to racism and said that she feels so naïve in saying it but the discrimination that women face in the industry is a lot like racism.

The 30-year-old actress further said that in the industry everyone is aware of it but one day, you open up your eyes and see that you truly are being treated differently and it can be found everywhere in the industry. She further said that she looks around and realizes that the discrimination is not only in industry but also everywhere in her daily life. The actress, who is a self-proclaimed feminist also said that she wears mascara and has a high I.Q. and that goes hand in had and that's what it's all about.
