Women and Education

Education for girls guarantees that they learn, feel safe at school, have the chance to complete all the levels of education, acquire the knowledge and skills to be competitive on the market, learn socio-emotional and life-related skills needed to navigate and adapt to a changing world and contribute to their communities and the world. Educated women tend to be better informed about nutrition and health care, have fewer children, marry later, and have healthier children when they choose to become mothers. Girls who receive an education earn a higher income, participate in the decisions that affect them the most, and build a better future for themselves and their families. Sources: 3, 8

Educating girls and young women increases a country’s productivity and contributes to economic growth. Research from the World Bank and other organizations shows that increasing the ” Girls Education raises women”s wages and leads to faster economic growth than boys education. Sources: 2, 5

Education has had a significant impact on the health and economic future of young women, which in turn improves the prospects of their whole communities. Providing women and girls with high-quality education improves their employment prospects. Education for girls and the empowerment of women in general, especially in developing countries, lead to faster development and faster and lower population growth. Sources: 4, 10

Girls who marry young are more likely to drop out of school and complete fewer school years than their peers who later marry. This, in turn, affects their children’s education and health, and their ability to earn a living. If marriage interrupts or terminates girls “education, it cannot acquire the skills that can lift them out of poverty, which is why 60% of child brides in developing countries have no formal education. Sources: 2, 8

In 18 of the 20 countries with the highest prevalence of child marriages, girls without education are six times more likely to be married as children than girls with secondary education. With fewer girls in child marriages, girls who are educated are less likely to marry and have children, and more likely to live healthy and prosperous lives for themselves and their families. Smaller and more sustainable families with girls with education are also helping to reduce population growth. Sources: 2

On the occasion of the International Women’s Day, let us look at five ways in which education can improve the lives of women and girls around the world. Women and girls have less access to education than their male counterparts: 66% of the world’s 774 million illiterate people are women. Women, especially girls, are denied the chance of education in developing countries. Sources: 4, 7

Much of the progress in women’s education can be traced back to specific interventions, such as abolishing school fees and scholarships, community schools for girls, and training teachers. The 2030 Education Framework recognises that gender equality requires an approach that ensures that girls, boys, women and men have access to the education cycle and complete it, but are also strengthened through education. Sources: 1, 5

Global education programs that help girls enroll and remain in school help women access and create new educational, financial and social resources for their communities. The education of women and girls in the world is the key to turning the cyclical nature of poverty into a cycle of prosperity. When women and girls are educated, they make wiser decisions about their own health. Sources: 4, 7

Evidence of economic and social benefits of educating women and girls has been mounting since the adoption of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In the nineteenth century, there was great progress in educational opportunities for women and girls, with the Common School Movement in the first half of the century and multiple opportunities for higher education throughout the century. The symposium will focus on the development of education for women and girls in the twenty-first century, including research by women previously excluded from established academics and aims to present itself as a showcase of provocative work in this field of women and education history. Sources: 5, 9

Education for women is an umbrella term for a range of complex issues and debates around education, from primary and secondary education to higher education and health education, especially for girls and women. Since Title IX, a federal law guaranteeing the right to education without gender discrimination, came into force in 1972, women and girls have made great strides toward achieving equality. Sources: 6, 10

For example, to correct the negative impact of child marriage and premature pregnancy on the right to education when a girl misses primary education, the state must provide basic education to replace the lack of primary education for girls who marry or become pregnant before primary school age (Article 13 d) of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights ). In the framework of the 1980 Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (1979), the CEDAW has adapted basic education to make efforts to keep girls in school and to organize programmes for girls and women who leave school (Article 10 (f)). Sources: 0

As permitted by international law, marriage before the age of 18 affects girls’ education and their access to higher education and other forms of higher education. With more women than men enrolled in US colleges, Americans often assume that girls “and women’s education is not an issue. However, the gap between the sexes is wider at a higher level of education, and it is not enough for girls to enrol in school; they must stay in school.

Women’s Needs

The pay gap between men and women is considerable: women earn 83 cents for every dollar men earn. This gap reflects the fact that women are less likely to be employed in well-paid jobs and are less educated than men. Sources: 8

To be fair, women are, on average, paid less than men and are more likely to work part-time – a factor that helped shield them from the current recession. But, while the gender pay gap reflects women’s own choice to do more demanding jobs with flexible hours and take time off to care for their families, it also reflects a legacy of stereotypes and discrimination that discourages or discourages women from being hired and promoted to better-paying jobs. Sources: 4, 8

Women do not need partners who put all their energy into proving themselves stronger, more masculine, more macho, or more heroic than they are. In a recent study, we examined what women between 18 and 75 need from men in their lives. Not surprising, the qualities which women seek from heterosexual romantic partners, male friends and men in general are not so different from those they seek from friends. Sources: 9

Women need men who show kindness, patience, understanding, empathy and compassion. Women need men in their lives who are feminist allies who want to see them as successful as they wish to enjoy their own success. Women don’t want perfect partners, but they do want men who aspire to be their best self. Sources: 3, 9

Due to the excessive overload of disempowering messages sent to women about their sexuality, women need a safe place where they can trust their partner. Few women want to feel guilty about anything to a sexual partner. In any kind of relationship, men and women should be considerate of each other’s feelings. Sources: 3, 9

For many women, especially women over 40 and in menopause, physical desire is not the primary motivation for sex. Different factors can help them to feel aroused and desire sex, and different factors can dampen desire. Sex is something that women ask for, but men don’t do it and don’t favor you by assuming that the result is a sexual favor for you. Sources: 7, 9

While the majority of modern men are unable to penetrate their wives, some women are more open than their husbands. While this is true for most men, it is not true for most women. Sources: 3, 7

Taking into account the biomechanical differences between men and women, there are innumerable usability problems when women use oversized tools. For example, cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in women, is still present in women and progresses more slowly than in men. When it comes to women’s needs, the relationship between man and woman is an emotional stalemate. Sources: 3, 5, 11

Around a quarter of women aged 65-74 and almost half of women aged 85 and over live alone, and as the older population continues to grow, demand for essential social support services such as transport, personal care and social isolation interventions will increase, as they provide primary health care that older women are more likely to experience than older men, even though women have a longer life expectancy. Sources: 5

Working with precise human factual data relating to the needs of men and women is crucial. We surveyed over 700 couples across the country and asked them to rank their needs for their spouses in our book 5 Love Needs: Men and Women. This study examined women’s perceptions of their most pressing problems and needs in the rural Amazon province of Orellana, Ecuador, in the mid-2000s. Sources: 2, 10, 11

We reveal that if there is one thing women are looking for, if they are looking for a man, it is trustworthiness. Our research shows that women have two main complaints about men: 1) that they are not there enough and 2) that they do not have enough emotional connection. Sources: 0

Studies have shown that there are remarkable gender differences in the prevalence of neurological disorders in women and men. Women have a lower risk of developing Parkinson’s disease (PD) than men, but research does not provide a clear explanation for why women are diagnosed earlier. Limited research shows that women with Parkinson have different experiences with the disease than men with the disease and this is linked with risk, symptoms, treatment and care. Sources: 1, 5

According to our survey, a third of the men are more burdened than men with household chores : women tend not to help their spouse or partner with housework. Seventy per cent of health and social care workers are women, and they do three times as much unpaid care work outside the home as men. Women tend to have better social networks than men, and women tend to manage their anxieties through concentrated tasks rather than anger, while men tend to do both. Sources: 0, 4, 6

As we have already written, the number of working women in the United States is surpassing the number of working men. Without new policies and practices that include greater burden-sharing for unpaid work outside the home, more support for working families under time pressure, and higher wages for men and women, middle-class income growth will disappear. Women must resist stereotypes about age and income segments, which lump them together with the characterization of “bad” or “undifferentiated” men.
