Evolving Interpretations: Sikhism & Women

Exhibition Dates:

March 2015 – February 2016

Location:

Sikh Heritage Museum

This exhibition explored the five kakkar’s and other symbols of Sikhism through the angle of the Sikh woman. The goal of this exhibit was to counter the idea that Sikhism-the-Faith is a naturally patriarchal and male-centered. The exhibition re-analyzed the 5 kakkar’s through a female perspective and also analyzed passages from the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji through the female perspective.
