Have we ever asked ourselves these basic questions:- What is education? Why education is important? What is the meaning of education? Is it a basic right for everyone? These questions still make sense and aren’t racist. However, asking that ‘Why is education important for women?’ is a completely prejudiced opinion because it makes us think that men are entitled with the right of education just because they are men.

The definition of education is vast but we can sum it up in a line saying- ‘education is development and growth of oneself’. Education makes us capable of acquiring new skills and being able to communicate with others in a civilized manner. Education is the basic right of everyone and therefore while providing education facilities, we should not discriminate among genders or sexes. Unfortunately, this discrimination still prevails in many parts of the world and therefore it is a need to make people understand that women also deserves to be educated and it is their basic right too just like men.

Education is very important for every child whether boy or girl. It is sad that some communities still discriminate against the education of the girl child. About 57 million children around the world are not going to school. The report, Children Still Battling to go to School, finds that 95% of the 28.5 million children not getting a primary school education live in low and lower-middle income countries – 44% in sub-Saharan Africa, 19% in south and west Asia and 14% in the Arab states, UNESCO said. Girls make up 55% of the total and were often the victims of rape and other sexual violence that accompanies armed conflicts, UNESCO said.
