She said: "They want to frighten us when we speak up because, especially after MeToo, we saw the enormous power when women come together."
“If you want to be someone who speaks out, you have to understand that you are going to rub people the wrong way, people who are in opposition as well as people on your own side because there is an odd amount of competition in activism I don't understand. & # 39;
“And you have to protect yourself. I am someone who is incredibly lucky … to have a loving household where I live with friends and a friend, but I also have access to very good therapy. & # 39;
She also said, “I am a scary prospect for patriarchy in this industry. I may inspire other women to speak up. & # 39;

On the BBC broadcast of the N Word, she said, “It has taken so long to get here to where we are having this conversation and you know we have been busy with situations until the last few weeks such enormous blind spots.
"So among the members of the BBC, for example, and choices they have made about words they use with reckless abandon on mainstream television, there is much to be undone."
"There's a lot to do, but I definitely feel like this conversation is starting in a more meaningful way than ever because the only thing we never had was social media."
"And we've never had a generation other than Gen Z, who mobilized and expressed their point of view so eloquently and powerfully. I think this is the beginning of real systemic change, I still hope."
Chat: She was in conversation with Afua Hirsch and called for more diversity in the TV industry
She added, “Part of what makes me dangerous to systems of repression is that I have nothing to lose. I am ready to move away from this industry instead of compromising my integrity. I got rid of my anxiety the first time I walked in. "
About her friendship with Afua Hirsch, she said: “It's so funny that you bring up the way the rhetoric has changed since George Floyd.
"The way you and I started becoming internet friends … we were both labeled as racists for creating the racism that is rampant in our media.
“And that's because we were a culture that was more afraid of being labeled racist than racism itself, which is now very normalized rhetoric.

“A year ago, when you and I stood up for Meghan Markle when others weren't, I am very happy to see that a lot of people are starting to pedal and noticing that there is a serious problem here and there there we won't get away with it. & # 39;
She also called for greater gender, ethnic and disability representation on television.
She said, “I would love it if our television industry, our film industry, included South Asians for example. I don't think we're diverse enough. I still think we're incredibly capable. We don't have nearly enough representation for the disabled.
“We have improved over the past few years and it would be wrong for me to deny that. I've definitely seen a significant improvement, but the problem is really systemic.
“While David was talking about this, there weren't enough people inside. I don't think in all of my years in the UK I have ever had a black or brown director or producer …

“I think I had an executive producer who was a South Asian woman and she was amazing and a big part of the reason I got my career on television in the first place because she built up for me. Otherwise I might have been replaced by another white person.
“Even having them there changed my career so much – we as minorities don't feel safe in a room where we don't recognize each other, where we don't have the feeling that someone in this room has our common experience.
“And so you know, I think it's really systemic when people only cast people who look like themselves or whose stories they can relate to, and that's why we deny ourselves so much color and so many interesting and diverse stories.
“We deny each other the chance to learn about other groups and from each other, and you know we are having this incredibly politically divisive moment and we have the opportunity within the media to remedy it.
“Denying that art has a huge impact on the way we feel is so short-sighted, and I think that if we need immediate change, we have to make sure we hire people who are marginalized be pushed.
“That means not only racially different, but also different in sexuality and gender and massively in terms of disability, because we don't show a world on screen that reflects the world we walk around in, especially in a place as cosmopolitan as the United Kingdom. & # 39;
