unlike many fantasy authors of *both* sexes, you seem to know how to write female characters without *female* topping the list of character traits

Yeah, this. GRRM's female characters are diverse, interesting, and just as well-developed as the male ones. They're just... people. People who are shaped by the fact that they're female and the particular roles and expectations and experiences available to them due to that, but mostly just people. And that's a significant part of why I like ASOIAF. I'm not someone who insists that ALL my media pass the Bechdel Test, but crappily-written female characters significantly detract from my enjoyment of stuff, and well-written ones add to it.
