"If you educate a man, you educate an individual. But if you educate a woman, you educate a nation."
Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment for women, as both the Cairo and Beijing Conferences affirmed. The word "woman" holds a lot of meanings. It's not just a word used to distinguish gender. People see women weak and incapable of anything. They see that the woman's only duty is to do house chores and raise children. They forget that she also got rights and one of her most important rights is education. When we educate a woman, we make sure that:
1- There will be future educated generations.
2-Decrease in infant mortality.
3-Decrease in maternal mortality.
4-Decrease in child marriage.
5-Decrease in population explosion.
If a woman is not educated then, how is she supposed to raise her children? An educated woman has the skills, information, and self-confidence she needs to be a better parent. On the other hand, lack of education for women limits prospects, decreases family income, puts girls and women at risk, and limits the economic achievements of all countries.
"Educate women and their community will prosper. Deny them and the world will suffer."
