In this essay I will analyse in depth Jim Butcher’s and George R.R. Martin’s female protagonists in Butcher’s Dresden Files and Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. The essay will demonstrate how both Butcher and Martin depict their female protagonists and companion characters and how their female characters cope with violence in a different manner than how most female writers let their characters do. Moreover, I will analyse and explain how Butcher and Martin’s female protagonists and companion characters are good examples of strong female characters. Both series will be discussed and analysed separately, and subsequently compared to each other, as well as to similar series by female authors, in order to demonstrate how Butcher and Martin depict their female protagonists differently from female authors.
