Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

In that time and probably still now, men are seen as superior in India and surrounding countries.

If there was a woman guru then people wouldn't really listen to her.

In those times woman would get burnt alive if they where widowed, and no other religion has given equal rights to woman than Sikhi.

Guru Nanak rejected wearing a Hindu sacred thread because it can't be worn by woman. (Plus many other reasons).

The first Sikh was Bibi Nanaki Ji (Guru Nanak Dev Ji sister)

Guru Amar Das Ji sent 52 females to spread Sikhi.

The Gurus themselves had female body guards, and Guru Ji gave a sword to a woman and let them fight in the front line in battles, even the British army still doesn't allow females to be in the front line.

Mai Bhago Ji, one of the greatest Sikh warriors, was female and if it wasn't for here I might not be alive today.

Check of these videos: Heres a whole playlist on Sikh woman

Basics of Sikhi have many videos on Woman and Sikhi do check them out.

Theres no other religion that treats men and woman equally than Sikhi.

So kio Mandaa aakheeai jit janmehi raajaan|| So why call her low? From her, kings are born.||

Guru Nanak Dev Ji also said from her kings and saints are born

Please forgive me if i said anything wrong or offensive.

Waheguru Ji

Well, you've asked a question that can't be answered because to project a reason into the past without knowing the circumstances leads to false reasoning. Do check out KAUR if you haven't already, for an introduction to the power of Mai Bhago's story on one contemporary girl.
