Stefani Robinson calls for improvement, even on a TV show with a "progressive" ideals.
FX's Atlanta is heralded as a fairly comprehensive at the Black Experience in America in any of the mediums generating interest in contemporary culture. It just so happens that Donald Glover crosses those boundaries with general ease, turning up as a recording artist when he sees fit, then reverting back to comedy as an instrument of Social Development. Unfortunately, Stefani Robinson is left advocating for change in the workplace, because as the only female writer on staff, she suddenly became "the voice for everyone." She shared her views with The Wrap:
“I’m just one person, and I’m here, and it’s a different perspective and I’m championing this and I’m happy to be in this space. But I think when you are the only one of anything you are suddenly the voice for everyone. And it’s such a hard place to be in and, I think, not a fair place to be in. There need to be more women everywhere, to be honest.”
The job itself isn't perilous, nor is the work environment dysfunctional. In fact, Stefani Robinson is highly appreciative of the opportunity at this stage in her career, it's just that when criticism is mounted by the liberal media about female characters not receiving enough shine, she is often left to answer for the rest of the team. Robinson calls it a "bummer" that she has to make so many concession as a Woman of Color. She also resents holding all the cards when female characters are drawn up, generally because she is the only staffer with personal insight.
