While Her Name is Kaur is specific to the Sikh American woman’s experience, the truths told in it about identity and faith, and relationships and love are universal. Many of the stories are set against the backdrop of the post 9/11 environment, discrimination, and violence. The courageous voices of the writers give us all the strength to come into our own as strong women with a community of support around them. — Deepa Iyer, former Executive Director, South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT)
