The role of women in Sikhism is outlined in the Sikh scriptures, which state that women are equal to men.


  • From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to a 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 whom kings are born. From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all. O Nanak, only the Creator is without a woman. That mouth which praises the Creator continually is blessed and beautiful. O Nanak, those faces shall be radiant in the Court of the Creator.
    • – Translated into English from Gurmukhi, Sri Guru Nanak Sahib in Raag Aasaa, Sri Guru Granth Sahib pp 473
