The Amrit of Guru Gobind Singh Ji not only brought about a revolution in aspects of society but also raised women to a position of equality, socially, politically and on the battlefield as well. Amoung the numerous examples of women showing courage and strength on the battlefront was Sada Kaur. Born in 1762 she went on to marry Gurbaksh Singh Kanhaiya, the only son of Misldhar Jai Singh Kanhaiya. Sada Kaur played an important role in uniting the Khalsa forces under the command of Ranjit Singh to drive out the Afghan invader Shah Zaman.
