Insecure actress and comedian Yvonne Orji graces the covers of Net-A-Porter‘s magazine #TheEDIT‘s second annual Women in Television issue. The issue celebrates “the best achievements of the small screen and debating the issues facing the industry and the females who work within it.”
Her role as the sexually liberated, non-conformist Molly and her graphic sex scenes in HBO‘s popular series, Insecure has opened the doors to discuss some of the double standards we hold about a woman’s sexuality and sexual freedoms.
