A Sikh Feminist Journey

As some of you know, I attended a Sikh Feminist conference in Vancouver recently where I got to hear some really inspiring women and men present their interpretations of people, concepts and experiences related to Sikhism, that I had not heard before. It was most refreshing.  I contributed this post to the F-Word blog describing the experience and its significance. Please do check it out! 

This is what a Sikh feminist looks like! According to Randi Clary’s presentation at the conference! Pictured  is poet and scholar, Bhai Vir Singh whose tracts emphasise what the characteristics of a good husband should be while earlier interpretations of his work have only focused on a wife’s role within a household.
