Educated women

Educated women (1) are more likely to marry later; (2)to have smaller families; (3) to understand healthcare and how to access it; (4) to be aware of their rights within their society; (5) Children with educated mothers are more likely to survive than those whose mothers did not receive an education; (6) contribute to the health and productivity of whole families and communities; (7) improve prospects for the next generation.

There solid evidence demonstrating the centrality of women’s empowerment to reducing poverty, unfortunately gender equality remains an unfulfilled promise.
