It is not enough if women are just educated, they must be taught to face real life situations, like to take leadership in family set up, speak and fight for justice, not to be a victim of fate and physical strength.


we shall all support women education.

Womens and girls are one of the power of our nation,because they are educated.educated womens first improvehis house then society then that all over place and next is country.so womens and girls education plays an important role...

Zeeshan Mehdi,

Disadvantages to whom! Obviously to the man with whom she marries. Yes, women after marriage submits many of her rights to her husband but it never meant that he can exploit them in any manner which he found advantageous fr him. True, that after marriage if women work then who will take care of the child, so the concern is here to find options for the child instead of putting absurd obligations over the Woman. Family boundaries remind me an instance of Valmiki, when he ws a dacoit, his whole family enjoyed the loot but when it comes fr the punishment, all family members put their hand back and ordered him to suffer alone. but in here women will work and earn with dignity so these boundaries are just a big illusion.


Requirement for examination .


Though some women are holding higher positions in our country but still in rural areas they are regarded as subordinate to men. Even after making the right to education mandatory girls are away from schools. The need of the our is to brought measures to implement this effeciently.
