Guru Nanak, Sikhism and Women Empowerment
Shanti Kaur discusses women’s position in society during the time of Guru Nanak, and Guru Nanak’s bani, which elevates the status of women.
He wrote, in his bani, about women. He said, ‘From women kings are born. From women the whole society maintains it’s strength. So how can you call any woman bad?’
