Safiyya on Societal Expectations of Women

30m | Jul 7, 2020

Safiyya, 33 and single, candidly shares all aspects of life as an unmarried Ismaili woman in her thirties, including how she feels about being set up, the inevitable truth of losing friends as they start families, her thoughts on her “biological clock” ticking, unapologetically not settling, and so much more. We discuss Safiyya’s drivers throughout her life - making a significant contribution to society and developing a strong career - and how women are fed narratives about marriage and motherhood being the pinnacle of life. Safiyya highlights that there are in fact many shapes outside the classic cookie-cutter option, and tells us how she has found fulfillment and happiness in the path she chose.
