Episode details

In this episode, Sabika and Mariyam share their journeys as 30 year-old, Indian Muslim women.

They discuss the challenges that most Indian women face in their 20s - incuding the pressures to get married, having a ‘settled life’, choosing family over career, finding a good ‘Muslim’ guy, and living in fears of being unmarried at 30.

How far did these fear lead them to make life decisions? How did they recognise these fears and manage them? Have these fears dissolved for good? How can other women across ages tackle such patriarchal expectations?

Give this episode a listen as Mariyam and Sabika talk love, family, friendship, therapy and career - things that made them comfortable to be ‘unsettled at 30’.
