Women in Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Hardeep Kaur


It  is  generally  said that the  state of  development  of  a  society  can  be  judged from  the  status a  woman   occupies  in  a  society  .A woman  performs    a  number  of   roles  in  the   family  ,community  and  the wider  social  system .Her status  in  the   society  is  determined by her  composite  status depending   upon    her   various  positions  and  roles  .The  position  of  woman  in our society   had  not   always   been  the  same . There was  times when she was  accorded a high  status  as in the  Rig  vedic  period but  in  the  middle  ages  ,her  position  was  reduced  to  that  of  a  slave .Many  evils  pertaining  to  woman   cropped  up  in the  society  like  polygamy ,sati system,  Dowry,  female  infanticide etc. In  this  paper, an  attempt  has  been  made  to examine  the  contribution  of  the  Sikhs  Gurus  to  the  cause of  the  upliftment  of  women.The  Hymns of  the  Gurus contained  in  the  Sri Guru Granth  Sahib,  the  Holy scripture of  the  Sikhs ,  clearly  reveals  that all the  Gurus  worked  for  the  emanicipation of  women .
