Women in Sikhism

Tune in to listen at this link http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01ptgfy

AVAILABILITY:OVER A YEAR LEFT TO LISTEN
Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: Monday 14 January 2013

The fundamental message of Sikhism appears to be simple; God is one and all people are equal. But are some more equal than others? If the Sikh scriptures are consistent with a feminist agenda, why do some Sikh women feel that they are second class citizens?

Joining Ernie to discuss the position of women within the Sikh tradition are Navtej Purewal, Lecturer in the School of Social Sciences at Manchester University; Eleanor Nesbitt, Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Education in the University of Warwick; and Nicky Guninder Kaur Singh, Professor in the Department of Religious Studies at Colby College Waterville Maine in the USA


My own note: I have listened to bbc radio in the past. The programming is rich and does not insult your intelligence. The sound quality is good, you do not have to be in UK to get a clear signal. Try it. You might definitely like it.
