We are Lady Parts

Blending silliness with subversiveness, British writer-director Nida Manzoor has created a sisterhood of electric-guitar toting, niqab-wearing, vaping, trailblazing young women (along with a soundtrack of original songs) navigating their second-generation identities with (s)punk and panache. We Are Lady Parts is exactly as cool as it sounds.
