Benefits of Education
In many countries, tradition and culture pose obstacles to women’s economic development
Education, especially for girls, has social and economic benefits for society as a whole
Educated women have more economic opportunities and engage more fully in public life.
Women who are educated tend to have fewer and healthier children, and they are more likely to attend school.
Education also increases the ability of women and girls to go and find jobs and make themselves employable.
Barriers to Female education
75% of the world's illiterate population are females (UNIFEM).
The denial of female education might be for a number of reasons
1. Barriers to Female education
Females are needed to work at home to allow parents to work,
OR families only have enough to educate one child and will educate males first.
2. Barriers to Female education
A belief that the role of females is to look after children and take care of the home and therefore do not need an education.
3. Barriers to Female education
The Taliban banned females from working, therefore eliminating female teachers and girls ability to get an education.
