Book Club – Fall 2021

Join our Fall book club! We’re reading “The Guru’s Gift: An Ethnography Exploring Gender Equality with North American Sikh Women” by Cynthia Mahmood and Stacy Brady. This book club will be hosted by Harleen Kaur & Guntas Kaur.

This ethnography looks at young Sikh women in the North America who are trying to figure out what the Sikh idenity means to them, along with a few who have started wearing dastars as a symbol of the empowerment within Sikhi. Learn about the 13 different women’s journeys.
