Sikh womanhood explored in Kauer's 'Daughter of Khalsa'

What is it to be a Sikh woman today? Harminder Kauer discusses the continuity between women in Sikh history and life today in "Daughter of Khalsa," at Global Sikh News. According to Kauer, "It is thru our parents that Guru Ji always tells us to listen and respect our parents. Bibi Bhani Ji once again gives us a great example of this by marrying Bhai Jetha Ji (who later becomes Guru Ram Das J) as per the wishes of her parents."

From it's inception, New York Theological Seminary has been involved in woman's issues. In the 1920's NYTS, then known as The Bible Teacher's Training School,  blazed new trails by graduating a Korean woman.  NYTS' recent woman's conference covered a myriad of issues impacting men and women.
