Girls' education reduces child mortality.
If women all over the world had secondary education, then child mortality would be halved, saving 3 million lives. Not only the lives of girls, but all lives. Christina Taylor, Community & Bequests Officer for Plan International, notes: “All children are important, they have the same rights and deserve the same opportunities, but since girls face double discrimination against women and youth, it’s so important that we We focus on eliminating their shortcomings and systemic abuses. ”
Educated mothers improve baby nutrition. According to UNESCO, if all women had secondary education, 12 million children would be saved from underdevelopment and malnutrition. Given that malnutrition is the cause of nearly half of all childhood deaths under the age of 5, it cannot be denied that we need to educate girls who will become mothers. It is easy to understand how the lack of education affects society as a whole. The girl’s education not only gives knowledge, but also gives them the strength and understanding of her life, which ultimately benefits everyone.
Educated women are less likely to die in childbirth. An estimated 153 million children worldwide, from infants to adolescents, have lost one or both parents. Imagine if we can reduce this by 98,000? Well we can! According to UNESCO, if all mothers completed primary education, then maternal mortality would be reduced by two-thirds. Every child deserves to grow up with the love and care of his parents, and by developing girls, we increase the chances of a homeless childhood for many.
Education narrows the pay gap and increases a woman's chances of achieving career advancement. Everyone deserves the opportunity to work for fair and equal pay; to provide for themselves and their families. Of course, it is just as valuable and wonderful to stay at home and take care of the family, but it must be a choice. For many women who are in unsafe and unhappy marriages, care is not an option because they do not have the skills and education to find work and secure an income. For these women, living in unhappy or abusive relationships seems better than living on the streets asking for money; the lesser of two evils in a way. Women should not be restricted in this way, and this can easily be avoided if we give all girls the right to education.
