So what do men have to do with anything? Everything!

Our goals of attaining individual autonomy cannot be accomplished without our spiritual partners and our male counterparts.  Modeling positive behavior, inspiring and raising children, understanding and loving their spouse, lending a helping hand to the parents are just a few vital roles Sikh Men play to influence families and the community.  What makes a man a successful is not that he is a breadwinner, but also a good husband and a good father.

With the help of men who care and are willing to make a difference and with those who love us (Husbands, Sons, Brothers, Fathers...), together we can overcome obstacles such as lack of education and inadequate heath care.  We can openly discuss diseases not commonly talked about (i.e. breast cancer, sexually transmitted diseases, prostate cancer, alcoholism, smoking, drugs, mental and physical abuse, child abuse) and other very personal and important issues considered a social taboo when discussed openly.  

Statistically, women outlive men by 7 years.  Because we love the boys and men in our lives, we work in concert with them to increase awareness of issues that affect us - as families and as communities.
