One of the most asked questions is "Is this Brahma Kumaris a women's organization?" the answer is indeed "No". Though primarily at its initial stage women administered it yet men and women all contribute uniformly. It is the strange unification on multiversity and masculinity, the perfect medley of feminineness and maleness that makes Brahma Kumaris an establishment of its own rank.
With eight young women Brahma Baba formed a Managing Committee In October 1937 and in February 1938, he ceded his entire worldly assets to a Trust doled by them. The role of women in the growth of Brahma Kumaris is therefore undeniable. Brahma Baba quite ideally envisioned that the womanly timbres like patience, tolerance, sacrifice, kindness and love will surely become the foundation of Brahma Kumaris which certainly supports in personal growth, human relations, and in the development of caring communities.
The union of man and woman, the ideal harmony of the feminine qualities with the masculine magnificence was the very cornerstone of the spiritual partnership of Brahma Kumaris. Today, even though women leads the establishment, yet there are many men coordinating centres, playing other key managerial roles.
