And yet I know some people side-eyed Dan Harmon for saying that he worked incredibly hard to make sure his writing team was 50-50, because he argued that it was harder to find a good group of female writers. But I think what he meant was that it was hard to find a collection of well-known, tried-and-tested female writers because so few shows give them a chance.

And ultimately his conclusion was that it was worth it and that having women in the room frequently forced them to reconsider certain ideas based on things the women had to say that never occurred to them.
