I am a half-Jew, half-WASP, and I wrote two Jews and two WASPs.Something I wanted to avoid was tokenism in casting.

Managing this high-wire feat isn’t straightforward. Campbell, an actor who trained originally at the Central School of Music & Drama in London, has a CV that runs the proverbial gamut from stage to screen.

Sex scenes have come as part of the territory, she says.

In 2006, she produced Pressure, in which a girl and two friends talk about experiencing an orgasm for the first time, which makes Dunham's character feel pressured to do so as well. "Instead I went to liberal arts school and self-imposed a curriculum of creating tiny flawed video sketches, brief meditations on comic conundrums, and slapping them on the Internet." "There were just pages of You Tube comments about how fat I was, or how not fat I was," Dunham said.

"I didn't want you to Google me and the first thing you see is a debate about whether my breasts are misshapen." In 2009, Dunham created the Index Magazine web series, Delusional Downtown Divas, which satirized the New York City art scene.

On January 3, 2017, she praised Glamour for featuring her with bare legs on their February 2017 cover - sans Photoshop - meaning that her cellulite on her thighs is visible. In fall of 2012, Dunham appeared in a video advertisement promoting President Barack Obama's re-election, delivering a monologue, which, according to a blog quoted in The Atlantic, tried to "get the youth vote by comparing voting for the first time to having sex for the first time".

Fox News reported criticism from Media Research Center's Lauren Thompson, public relations professional Ronn Torossian, and media trainer Louise Pennell, which labeled the advertisement as tasteless, inappropriate, and a ploy to lure the younger female vote.

For her work on Tiny Furniture, Dunham also won an Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay.

I got a copy of Tiny Furniture from [HBO president] Sue Naegle.

Donald Glover guest starred as Sandy, a black Republican and Hannah's love interest, in the first two episodes of season two, which was criticized as tokenism in response to the initial backlash from the first season.

and a case of mistaken identity when a former Oberlin College student named Barry (the pseudonym used for Dunham's alleged attacker in her book) sought legal advice to ensure people didn’t associate him with the content.

And only later did I realize that it was four white girls.
