Equality Quotes from the GGS . What does the Guru Granth Sahib say about women?

Status of Women in Sikhism

 From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married.  Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come.  When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound.  So why call her bad? From her, kings are born.  From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all. 
Guru Nanak, Raag Aasaa Mehal 1, Page 473
