Women in Education

Fixing the gender inequality in education around the world

Inequality in Education

Women across the globe have struggled with getting an education since the beginning of time. In countries like the United States this issue has been almost resolved, but in countries like India purity and virginity are valued more than a girls education. 2/3 of all the illiterate people in the world are women. This is the problem, many countries don't put education first and people can see the consequences for women not being educated.

Statistics
