Women in Sikhism

Women in Sikhism
Historical practices
Traditions such as sati, jauhar, and devadasi have been banned and are
largely defunct in modern India. However, some cases of these
practices are still found in remote parts of India. The purdah is still
practiced by many Indian women, and child marriage remains
prevalent despite it being an illegal practice, especially under current
Indian laws.
