Representation matters: my six favourite black female fictional lawyers.
- Clair Huxtable (The Cosby Show)
- Maxine Shaw (Living Single)
- Joan Clayton (Girlfriends)
- Jessica Pearson (Suits)
- Olivia Pope (Scandal)
- Annalise Keating (How to Get Away With Murder)
I think one of the big issues with how the show writes this subject (sex while drunk) is that they likely think this is a way to make cheating less serious. Kerry cheated on Dan...but she was drunk. Robert cheated on Aaron...but he was drunk. They don't really get the consent aspect. Maybe in future they will. I'm not expecting it to be mentioned here. I just hope people will not blame Maxine Alderton for it.
