Gender Justice Fellow
Preet Kaur has more than a decade of experience in the emerging field of Sikh feminist research, focusing on the intersection of gender, migration and the law. Preet has centered her research, writing and public speaking on family law and Punjabi-Sikhs in an attempt to challenge culturally entrenched gender roles in marriage and family relationships. Preet’s work also addressed essentialized understandings of cultural and religious accommodation of Punjabi-Sikhs in the official law setting. Preet completed her PhD at SOAS, University of London and previously taught at City University of New York. She lives in the Greater New York City area with her partner and two children. Preet is a fierce advocate for her quadriplegic daughter. Her current writing is focused on race, motherhood and maternal health outcomes.
