Perspectives of the Prominence of Women in Caodaism and Sikhism

Room 602B
Description: 
The universal principles enshrined by Guru Granth Sahib will be presented as a model demonstrating peaceful coexistence through empowerment. Sikhism has an historical background of inspiring women, who inspire a strong community-nation. Learn about the prominent role of women in the relatively new religion of Caodai in Vietnam, which has a Constitution that sets forth the rights of women to pursue the priesthood, achieve promotions, have independent management of women's affairs, and perform Caodai services in which women preside side by side and on equal footing with their male counterparts.
