This essay argues that the Female Sikh Migrant to Singapore in the Mid 20th century was not a passive but an active migrant. She was able to renegotiate gender norms and assert her agency in both the private and public spaces.By doing so, she was able to alter patriarchal hierarchy of the society and ideas of how a 'proper' Sikh woman should behave.
