No trauma porn, no white saviors.

While there are no official plans for a second season of We Are Lady Parts, its success has been largely positive. The #weareladyparts tag on TikTok has more than 4 million views, and the top videos are filled with young Muslim women raving about being thrilled with the representation—which is exactly why these kinds of shows matter. Creative choices aside, you don’t have a show if you can’t serve your audience. But if we’re lucky enough to see a Season 2, I’d love to see Amina try to reconcile her love of playing music and her friendship with Noor, find out whether Saira manages to make it back into her mother’s heart, and see Amina and Ahsan’s storyline continue. Manzoor has effectively created an avenue to explore the nuances of faith and feminism; the conflicts she’s set up in Lady Parts—isolation, judgment, anxiety—are all very real parts of womanhood that aren’t always discussed in Muslim communities. But stories like these deserve to be told, and I hope this was just their first track on a very long, very punk album.
