Illiteracy Impacts Women the Most.
For centuries, atrocities towards women have been considered “women’s issues”, yet the plight of women is a product of a combination of social, economic, and educational dysfunctions, which have immeasurable societal and global consequences.
A key factor contributing to statistics like these are born out of the perceived value of females in the developing countries. All too often, girls are often raised to believe they are second-class citizens who are less worthy than their male peers.
Literacy is an opportunity for change; not just for the empowerment of women, but for a nation to redefine her role.
