According to Charles Malikleo, “The fastest way to change society is to mobilize the women of the world.” This can only done by giving education to women.
Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment for women. It is also an area that offers some of the clearest examples of discrimination women suffer. Offering girls basic education is one sure way of giving them much greater power — of enabling them to make genuine choices over the kinds of lives they wish to lead. This is not the luxury, it is a basic human right.
There are so many people who talk about women empowerment. But do they actually know what does this word, Empowerment, means.According to the Oxford English Dictionary, empowerment (a noun) means; An authority or power given to someone to do something. So, Women Empowerment, clearly means giving power to women so that they can have genuine possibilities to become everything theh wish for.This power doesn’t mean giving women the right of doing everything, right or wrong, but the way of enabling the women to stand for themselves when needed and so that they can earn in case of need.So this is possible only when women are educated.
There are some of the key reasons that would help us understand the importance of Girl’s Education in a refined way:
1. Improves literacy rate of the country
2. Reduces chances of poverty from the country
3. Makes a nation politically strong.
Educating a girl means, educating a family, educating a society, educating a nation.When a single seed can bring so many fruits, why to suppress it at the initial stages.Let this seed grow and enhance the beauty of the nation.Because there is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.According to Margaret Thatcher,”If you want something said, Ask a man, If you want something done, Ask a woman.
