"If you educate a man, you educate an individual. But if you educate a woman, you educate a nation" 

“If you educate a man, you educate an individual. But if you educate a woman, you educate a nation” 

Investing in the education of girls has profound impact on communities, countries, and across the globe. Girls who get the scope of education are less likely to marry early and lead healthier, more productive lives. They have higher salaries, are more involved in the issues that impact them, and are able to better their own and their family’ destinies. Education for girls boosts economies and decreases inequity. It leads to more secure, resilient societies that allow all people, especially boys and men, to reach their full potential.

However, education for girls entails more than just going to school. It’s also about girls feeling secure in the classroom and supported in the topics and vocations they choose, particularly ones where they are underrepresented.

Millions of girls are prevented from receiving a safe and equitable education owing to a number of obstacles. When it comes down to it, though, girls are sometimes refused an education simply because of their gender. Education is a privilege, not a right. And all young people, regardless of who they are or where they were born, have the right to a good education, equal opportunities, and equitable access to essential resources. Unfortunately, reports of gender-based violence and degrading practices like child marriage and female genital mutilation are not new; and the only way to eradicate these diseased condition is through systematic education.

Education is the key

Gender-equitable education systems should be encouraged that empowers both girls and boys fostering life skill development.  Proper exposure to self-management, negotiation, communication and critical thinking reduce skills gaps that perpetuate pay disparities and eventually create a developed society that reflects in the growth of the nation.

The advancement of adolescent girls’ education has not kept pace with the difficulties they face today. According to a United Nations estimate, one out of every four girls in the world between the ages of 15 and 19 is unemployed. In comparison to 1 in 10 boys her age, she is uneducated and untrained. As a result of the growing pandemic, 47 million girls will be forced into poverty. There will be 435 million women and girls living on less than $1.90 a day.

Why it matters?

A well-educated girl is more likely to participate in the workforce, bringing financial health to her family and community. According to studies, women invest roughly 90% of their income into their families and communities, eliminating poverty and enhancing everyone’s health, safety, and education.

Education helps to shape her thoughts, participate in political and economic matters, and encourage other women to do the same and eventually contribute in societal reform.

Educated woman will rarely allow the oppressive practices of forced early marriage and FGM to inflict upon her siblings. Similarly, there will be clear idea about the complications of unprotected coitus and can significantly improve maternal and infant health by avoiding uninformed relationships.

 

There is a change in the approach and India is steadily progressing in improving gender equality in education. That said, a much larger collective effort is required to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal of eliminating “gender disparities in education and ensuring equal access to all levels of education and vocational training for the vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples, and children in vulnerable situations.”
