Sikh Women

Unfortunately these days if the words 'famous Sikh women in history' are mentioned, we get stuck after Mai Bhago (Mata Bhaag Kaur) and Bebe Nanaki. We tend not to hear about other brave Kaurs who risked their lives, gave their lives or dedicated their lives to Sikhi. The stories of our Sikh mothers and sisters would continue to inspire young Sikh women today if they were told and learned more often.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji said:

From woman, man is born;
within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married.
Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come.
When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound.
So why call her bad? From her, kings are born.
From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all.

Without the input of Kaurs the Khalsa Panth would be non existent.

Okay technically I'm advertising another website, but this is REALLY good for information on women in Sikh history.
