    Turns out she’s not just kick-ass on screen, Maisie Williams is a bit of a powerhouse in real life too. The only difference is that instead of killing the villains of Westeros, Maisie is taking on everyday sexism.

    When the Daily Mail paired a picture of the star, who plays Arya Stark in the hit HBO show, with a headline commenting on her lack of underwear, Maisie was having none of it, posting the headline with a suggested revision from her Twitter account.

    The piece, which was ostensibly about the NCPCC’s Summer masquerade ball, actually focused on what she was wearing, which was apparently more interesting than the charity itself.

    Maisie suggested that her contribution to fundraising for a children’s charity was more important than whether or not she’d put a bra on. Obviously the Mail Online disagreed. So Maisie tweeted an alternative suggestion.

    You’re our hero, Maisie.
