Why the education of women is important?


Education plays a very important role in the social and economic development of any country. Every citizen of our country has some fundamental rights and right to education is one of them. Unfortunately, a larger section of our society is ignored from this fundamental right especially the girls or the women. The education of the women is very important and it is the first step of women empowerment.

There is a famous proverb ” if you educate a boy then a single family is benefited and if you educate a girl then two families will be benefited”

The literacy rate of women in India is very low and major reason behind this low literacy rate is biased behavior in the Indian society.  There are several perceptions of Indian society behind the low literacy rate of females. Few of them are listed below.

•    In the Indian society, females or girls are considered as the liability so spending on girl’s education is useless. 
•    Females are responsible only for  managing household works only
•    Females can’t support the financial needs of the family as they will go to some other family after marriage. 

What are the Benefits of Women education

When we refer entire population, the percentage of educated female is very less in comparison to male. A nation can be educated in the real sense only when the entire population of our country has the access to education irrespective of gender. The education of every girl is important and we have summarized briefly the advantages of women education. 

Better education for children: An educated woman can give better education to her children as the education of every child starts with its mother only.

Economic development and prosperity: An educated woman will take one step forward and contributes to the development and prosperity of the country.

Economic empowerment: The education of females makes them independent. They can earn and make their own status in the society.

•  Healthy life of the family: An educated woman understands the importance of health and hygiene. She can better take care of herself and her family.

Quick skills learning: An educated female can learn things quickly and easily. So, even though a woman will be becoming a housewife in the future, education will help her in her daily tasks.

Improve poverty: The education of women is important to lighten poverty. Women need to take equal responsibility for the massive task of eliminating poverty and it is not possible unless girls and women are given their rights for education.

Fight for justice: The education of women helps in the understanding of various rights and right for justice is one of them. It eventually declines the instances of violence and injustice against women such as dowry, forced-prostitution, child-marriage, female foeticide, etc.

Government Initiatives for Female Education

The literacy rate of India has been improved many times in the last several years. At the time of independence, the literacy rate of India was approximately 12% only and as per the census of 2011, it is close to 74%. The literacy rate of females is less in comparison of males and it is close to 65% as per census 2011. The Government understands the importance of education for woman and they have launched several schemes for the educations of girls such as CBSE scholarship scheme 2016, sukanya samridhi yojana, balika samridhi yojana, Mukhyamantri Kanya Suraksha Yojna, Mukhyamantri Rajshri Yojna, Mukhyamantri Laadli Yojna, Mazi Kanya Bhagyashree Scheme, Nanda Devi Kanya Yojna etc.
