Game of Thrones star Lena Headey is expecting a baby daughter this summer, and she shared the good news in a total girl power move: by penning a feminist essay.
Headey, 41, wrote a guest post for Plan International USA on May 20, asking for donations to the Because I Am a Girl Safe Future project, which aims to support young women in Egypt and give them the same rights and privileges of people in more developed nations.
“I am having a baby girl in six weeks. You have all been so lovely in your message to me, and I thank you for that,” she said.
“My daughter will have freedom of choice. She will be free to dance, to sing, to be educated in the fields that spark her passion, to marry if she wants, to marry WHO she wants, to remain single, or to fall in love with another woman. She’ll be able to wear what she wants, put on lipstick, and read books that spark debate and expand her mind.”
