First of all, starting with my personal quote
” Educating a girl child is like educating the Country at all the levels of its growth and infrastructure “. Today’s scenario is different from what we saw 10-12 years back. Today we are seeing a different world where women are competing with men at every level in all aspects. As we see today awareness programs have successfully changed the world scenario on the education of Girl Child.
Many programmes are going on Worldwide for the education of Girl Child like UNESCO Malala Fund for Girls Right to Education, UNESCO Women Joint program on Empowering Adolescent Girls and Young Women through Education, Care for Girls Education program (GEP).
There are many role models for women in this 21st century such as Malala Yusufazai , Hofna Cameroon, Graca Machel, Madhusree Dutta, Rehana Fatima etc.
We need to educate the girl child.

Graca Machel is a Mozambican politician and humanitarian. She is the widow of both former presidents of Mozambique and South Africa; Mozambican president Samora Machel and South African president Nelson Mandela. Machel is an international advocate for women’s and children’s rights and was made an honorary British Dame by Queen Elizabeth II in 1997 for her humanitarian work.

Madhusree Dutta was born in the industrial town of Jamshedpur, Jharkhand (then Bihar). She has studied Economics at Jadavpur University, Kolkata and Dramatics at the National School of Drama, New Delhi. In 1987 Dutta shifted her base to Mumbai (called Bombay in 1987).

Rehana Fatima is an activist from Kerala who supports the Rights of Women and promotes the welfare of society. Rehana also sought to challenge bastions of male dominance by taking part in the Puli Kali (annual Onam tiger mask dance), a popular event in Thrissur that usually see the attendance of all-male troupes. Women activists working for empowering women.
Some years ago there was inequality of women in the world. Earlier they were told to work in household and take care of children only. The mindset of early people was that if the women are educated they will argue with men for every cause. So they were only told to take care of the household and children. There was total discrimination of women based on gender, race and colour. They were not given any freedom like men in the early ages. When men realised that women are valuable for the infrastructure of the Country, they were given different small-small opportunities for doing the work. Even the people now believe that behind every man there is a woman. It is a true fact that behind every man’s success is a woman. Earlier people never recognized it that’s why they were not able to utilize their hardworking skills. Now there are awareness programs like “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao”. That’s why I said a quote that Educating a woman is like educating the Country at all the levels of its growth and infrastructure. We need to educate the girl child.
Hope you guys enjoyed reading the blog through knowing about women in the early and present times.
