Women education should be must for they are the first teachers of man and they hold the family together with their sacrifices. Education means imparting or exchanging of general knowledge, adeveloping the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself or others”. Women, half the population in either case, are of pivotal importance for every society especially when they are the house runners in the kitchen or for initial schooling of our kids. Today, education is the part and parcel of every society. Nations rise and fall because of it. They feel glory at their education and knowledge. The realm that seeks wisdom in the form of knowledge becomes dominant. Education is necessary for the building of a nation as well. Keeping women in would keep our miseries out.
The example of the progressed states is before us, they have eliminated illiteracy: they have educated the masses. And their women are no exception to this. They forgot all discrimination and men and women are competent alike. They are all useful citizens. The percentage of literacy in the developed countries is over ninety percent. That is the foremost reason of their progress and national harmony. Their inhabitants are self sufficient and can decide on their own. Their people’s education led them to industrial revolution and prosperity. Their literacy allows them to study their own religious and political beliefs and not to be biased.
The situation in the third world is quite different as compared to the richer nations. The only disparity is education. Their literacy is about 40 %( claimed to be). They could not earn much affluence out of illiteracy. They remain backward and can not step forward. The industry does not grow and they use old methods in agriculture. The stats of education for women are even alarming where ratios fall even below 20% for graduate level. This needs to be improved to make things go better.
The difference between the developed countries and the third world is quite clear owing to literacy and illiteracy. An uneducated person remains unaware of the opportunities around him. He can not even read his own basic religious beliefs and ideas. He has to depend upon the biased ideas circulating in his surroundings. The only job an illiterate person can do is labour without much reward.
The present state of affairs can well be changed under following suggestions:
(1) Education should be made compulsory.
(2) No job, even labour, should be provided without elementary education.
(3) Child work ought to be banned.
(4) Attractive offers should be made so as to lure larger number of children to studies.
The world around us is changing with every second. We have got to make people aware that aknowledge is a power” and they have got to acquire it with zeal. It is a religious obligation as well. Our prophet said: Seek knowledge even you have to travel to China. It must also be remembered that education is imperative for all i.e. men and women.
