Woman’s day isn’t just about having a day for women but about acknowledging their importance and their need in our society. Its to appreciate every beautiful woman out there who’s still hustling in silence to see a brighter day.
There was a time when people thought that it was not necessary to educate girls. They thought it was only sufficient to confine women to the kitchen as they belonged there. Now we have begun to realize that girls’ education is essential. The modern age is the age of awakening of girls. They are trying to compete with men in all spheres of life. There are many people who oppose girls’ education. They say that the proper sphere of girls is the home. So, they argue that the money spent on girl’s education is wasted. This view is wrong, because girl’s education can bring about a silent resolution in the society.
While some of us are so privileged to study in private schools and colleges, there are so many children still dreaming about being educated. Educate a girl and in turn, she’ll educate an entire society. Education is the key to all success and a betterment of any society. Creating awareness about educating girls is of utmost importance.
By empowering communities to improve girls’ education and schools, more girls can be educated. If more girls are educated, then their health, income levels, and overall livelihoods improve, bringing about social transformation.
