We have temporarily closed the advice column.
We will let our readers know when we start accepting questions again. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime, check out our older advice column articles.
Anonymously submit your questions for a team of Sikh women at Kaur Life to give you their two cents. They’ll try to draw from their own experiences, Sikh philosophy, history, rehat, and gurbani to give you advice, new perspectives, and things to consider.
We started this advice column as a space to hear and attempt to answer questions that you may be struggling with. Dating, love, and sex are tough topics to handle alone and not all of us have friends or family to turn to for advice. We hope this advice column can begin to fill this gap!
Your questions will be answered by a team of Sikh women who, together, have been involved with gender violence prevention efforts, researched South Asian honor culture, and are deeply engaged with their local Sikh sangats. They have degrees in law, education, computer science, ethnic studies, political science and more. Every two weeks we will respond to one of your questions publicly. We all come with our own diverse, and sometimes conflicting experiences, and will attempt to reflect these thoughts in our response. It should be noted that none of us are experts in your experience. We hope you take our advice with a grain of salt and forgive us for any part of your experience that we may have misinterpreted.
Individuals of all genders are encouraged to submit questions! This is not a female-specific advice column by any means.
Please note that we receive a lot of questions and we do our best to develop thoughtful responses. We do not provide advice or responses over email. Instead, we will try our best to answer your specific question
