Research has shown that investing in the education and financial power of girls and women generates multiple social benefits. Better educated women have higher incomes and raise healthier children. They are more likely to be able to plan the size of their families, and they choose to have fewer children. Women are more likely than men are to use their earnings to support the health and education of their
Gender inequality throughout the world will not start to improve unless we start at the source of the issue. Overall there are many gender inequalities that are geared towards women that will not start to change unless they are corrected at a young age. Girls and women are proven to be disadvantaged in education systems in most parts of the world (“UNESCO Joins Partners…”). Some people argue that gender equality is not the biggest issue in the world because boys also can be disadvantaged. For example, of the boys that are out of school in South and West Asia, 16% of them are unlikely to ever start school (“Girls’ Education and…”). While there are cases in some parts of the
Gender Inequality There are hundreds and thousands of athletes all around the world but the main problem in the athlete world is gender inequality, women are not shown equal as men. They are discriminated in many ways such as pay, employment opportunities, value of women 's sport, media coverage etc. Despite the federal law passed called Title IX that “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination." there is still gender inequality women are considered less than men. No matter what happens people will always have inequality against men and women because of the environment they live in and how they were raised. Women are
Education drastically improves the well being of both women, and their families. Research has found that if all students in developing nations were educated with basic reading skills, 100 million women could be lifted out of poverty (Improving Health and Well-being). Education is also one of the most efficient ways to develop more rights and opportunities for women. Each year that a girl attends school beyond fourth grade results in a 20% increase in wages later on. When an educated woman’s income increases, she will invest 90% of that money in her family and community (Improving Health and Well-being). Finally, educated women wait longer to marry and start a family which makes them better parents. Their children have improved health and nutrition, lower mortality rates, and are more likely to attend school, creating a chain reaction throughout
Western countries like us North Americans take education for granted and we don’t realize how fortunate we are. We complain about attending classes and completing our homework, while there are many girls fighting for our privilege. Are you aware that there are still many countries where girls don’t have access to education? `Education is an essential human right that developing countries such as India, Pakistan,Afghanistan were intended to have access to already! This resembles as one breathes, eats, and drinks. I fully agree with the UNESCO research, which demonstrates that education transforms lives. Unfortunately, this transformation seems to be unacceptable for many in developing countries. They desire women to be dependent, enslaved, and
B. Rationale for selecting the issue Educating women is a catalyst to many other major social justice issues. It is the ultimate solution to sustainable living and development. In many countries women with so much potential remains unrecognized because of lack of education. The reasons for selecting the issue are all interconnected.
“When Girls are educated, their countries become stronger and more prosperous.” First Lady Michelle Obama stated that in one of her exceptional speeches on education rights in her ‘Let Girls Learn’ campaign. In such a world where modernization has come so far, it seems ridiculous that preaching for a basic right, such as education for half of the world’s population is still an ongoing issue struggling to meet its goals. The world strives to move forward in full motion but fails to acknowledge that we will never reach the full potential of success unless all lives are given an opportunity for education. Two-thirds of the 774 million illiterate people in the world are women (EFA GMR, 2013). Slow education progress for children today will have

Women for years have struggled with not getting the same necessities as men such as healthcare and education. Two-thirds of the worlds 771 million illiterate adults are women and this is probably due to not being in the right area to get an education
The goal of providing better education for women does not mean abandon or suppressing men. By placing men and women on an equal level, the relatively increased valuing of women will also benefit men by telling them the strengths, capabilities and contributions of members of the opposite sex. It may also decrease the pressure many boys feel to respect the traditional roles, behaviors and ways of thinking. Eventually, the stereotypes may prevent and eliminated, so education will be more gender balanced.
Despite massive improvements it is evident that women's rights remain a critical issue throughout the world; particularly in the middle east. To understand these issues we must look at statics. In the middle east many families can only afford to send some of their kids to school; therefore, the males are usually sent because they are thought to be a better investment. They are also most likely to get a job and give back to the household. Unfortunately, as a result,girls make up more than sixty percent of
Imagine not being able to attend school as a child. Imagine how much of an impact that would have on the rest of a human life. Everyday in the region of the Middle East, women are prohibited in some areas from attending school. Without basic knowledge, they cannot obtain jobs and their health conditions are lowered. Even if education is offered, it does not have a positive impact because it is of little quality. Despite the deeply rooted gender roles in the Middle East, women should be offered the same education as men.
What it is to be a man A question that is often asked by many women is “are all men the same?” The answer is no. One position about what it is to be a man is that society often stereotypes all men as sex driven beings, this is partially because men under certain circumstances may feel a social pressure. While this is for the most part physically and psychologically accurate, many men over time grow and change their beliefs or feelings towards sex. A second position is that a man’s environment can affect who they are, and momentarily or in some cases, for an extended period of time can determine their level of “masculinity”. This can be either negative and positive depending on the situation.
