HBO's Westworld is one of those utterly engrossing and thought-provoking shows that leaves the viewer with just as many questions as they've started with. And here at Livingly, we're totally obsessed. You can routinely find me digging up fan theories online (Reddit threads, anyone?) and trying to wrap my head around the many plot twists the series has thrown at us over the course of its two seasons.

That's the beauty of Westworld, really: Every time you think you've got something figured out, the show-runners throw you for a loop once again. And let's just say that Season 2's got me shook. 

One of my favorite things about the show, though, has to be its female characters. Although Season 1 saw them abused and objectified, the storyline has progressed into a beautifully developed, if garishly violent, unfolding of each female character arc.

It follows them as they seek to create a world in which they can be designers of their own future. Dolores, the oldest robot, or "host" in the park, seeks to reap justice on those who both created and harmed her, while Maeve just wants to create a new world in which she can live freely and safely with her daughter.

The most fascinating concept the show engenders is the fact it's not just human versus android. The struggle here is far more complex and nuanced at heart, and the women are an integral part of that. In fact, they're absolutely revolutionary. Read on to find out why.

Spoilers for Season 1 and 2 ahead.
