It’s been a long time coming, but Channel 4’s latest TV series, We Are Lady Parts, is sparking joy.
Following a Muslim female punk band as its members navigate their daily lives, this comedic and anarchic story of a fearless sisterhood shows a total unwillingness to be anything less than complex. Written and directed by Nida Manzoor it’s an outstanding work that has marked the potentiality of a cultural turning point for how Muslim women will be represented on TV screens. It’s a moment that’s been long-awaited by many and it is incredibly welcome.
