Do you believe education is for everyone? But some countries and culture education is not applicable for all not because of financial reason but their culture woman is not necessary to complete education because they only stay at home to take care children needs and family. Add to that they don't have part of the society. In your opinion and observation how education important for woman? I know some of you will not agree on this so I expecting your views and discussion about this issue.... see you around

Education is obviously equally important for women if not more. The time has gone when people used to think that women don't need education. We live in the modern age with a changed mentality. Obviously everyone do not think in the same fashion. That is why, so many cultures around the world still don't consider it important for women, which is very unfortunate.

The progress becomes even more slow when the nation's laws do not allow freedom for women that they deserve.

Considering what you say applies, because of financial reasons you have to choose between your son or your daughter to give higher education. What I will do is to give both of them elementary education and see which of them is better at school. I believe in all countries nowadays, opportunies to earn big does not apply whether you are a man or a woman. If the boy does not seem to be interested in his studies why waste the money on education on him? If instead you 'invested' on the girl, she carries on and becomes a doctor, you will gain in the end. Even if she has to stay home, she is able to carry herself with much confidence and this will pass on to her children who will most likely to do well in school. As for the son, even if he does not have high education, he is still able to earn big if he is innovative enough.

Oops I need to correct that not all countries, opportunities to earn.. but most countries. BTW I want to add that a man does not need high education to earn big because most men does not need to take part in most of the childs up bringing. Therefore thats why they can concentrate more on anything that will make them money.

education is important for everyone not just women. in what era are you in visavis? if it is important for me , it is also important for women. even in those countries where women used to be just at home, they are gaining their freedom to be educated and empowered.

Education is very important for woman. The first and foremost cause is that a woman would be a mother and obviously she would have to nurture her baby. If she is educated, it will be a blessing to her in nurturing her baby. Moreover,she would be able to impart the preliminary education to her baby. She would be able to run the whole family in a more effective way. She may also engage herself in a job suitable to her which would help in more financial stability of the family. All these would help in the betterment of the society as a whole. So, every woman should be encouraged to carry on her education. Moreover, access to education is the birth right of every citizen of an independent country.

While education can help you in a career, I believe in education for education's sake. Meaning that everyone should have the opportunity to learn and gain knowledge. I see no reason why a woman staying at home and taking care of her children should mean she shouldn't have the same opportunity to learn as anyone else. First, because she's taking care of children. The more she knows the more she can help them in their learning. Caring for human beings shouldn't be a mindless task. And what about enriching your mind for yourself? To me, no one should be denied an education and the only requirement should be the desire to learn. And, not everyone can afford formal education, but if they can, I say they should be allowed, even if "all" they're going to do is take care of children. And if they can't have a formal one, there should be other ways to learn -books should be available, libraries, a self imposed education. Bottom line, to me, education is important for women. And what they'll do with their lives is irrelevant to the answer.

Everyone needs education especially women.Even if women stay at home which is rare these days education makes them better homemakers increasing the productivity of husband and children.Women compete on equal if not better terms with men,so this question is out of place in present day society.Education is vital for everyone especially women.

i am a woman. i am 24 years old. but i am graduated from pharmacy and law. and right now i take master degree in management and master degree in law. i dont even think that my boyfriends can defeat me about knowledge. of course i will say that education is important for woman. so many woman are smarter than man. nowaday too many man acting like a spoint child, some of them dont want to work and only ask for money to their parents. what do you call a man like that?meanwhile so many woman are working for their husband and family.and what do you call them. life is full of balance. sometimes man is upstair. but sometimes woman is upstair. so many man depend on woman. woman has something special that man never had. so many woman have to take care their husband and child, have to cook, have totake care of the house but still working and get a good salary. so you have to respect woman, my friend.and dont forget to give high education for your daughter someday. she will need it for her future.

Education is for everyone, Yes. Well, most of the countries who just shut the ladies up in homes and make them do what guys want are Islamic countries mostly. Like Arabia. (If any Muslim here reads this, I don't mean anything bad.) Even if in those countries women have less rights in taking education, they are prepared to do other things. Most of those countries believe that women are just house people. Being a lady, of course, I want to learn. Good thing I live here in the Philippines where both guys and girls can study. Education is a very important thing and equality in this matter are being practiced by many countries now. I'm pretty sure we can hope that someday, all over the world, men and women's rights will be the same. The Philippines was one country too where men superior women, but now, they are equally the same. In fact, in many homes, it is the woman who is working and providing for the family. Hurray for the ladies!!!!

Well, as a woman, what i really like is to stay at home and be with my kids at all times. But the life situation is very hard, my mother was not an educated person because their parents don't value education. But my mother is different, she wants me and my sister finish college. and now that i finished college, i have work, not in the heat of the sun, she say that only education is what the can give to me.

Yes, I believe that woman needs to be educated even if you want to stay at home after. You do not need to work outside because you have finished a degree. It is much better to be educated even if you are at home. It takes a good education even if you prefer to stay at home because knowledge is a universal tool.

Personally I feel education should be for all, disregard gender. I shall focus my point on the general trend that woman stay at home to look after children and family. This woman if not educated learn and apply what she sees from her parents. If the woman is educated, she will be able to see, think and analyse for herself a better way to take care of the family and perhaps can better educate the children and groom them. I am sure many husbands will be happy to have a wife who can share or maybe "take over" the burden of educating the child. A silly view in the eyes of some but I feel strongly over it.

hello visavis! education is very important to everyone, including women, more importantly for women. Why? because they are the light of the home, they are the one who cares for the children, keep the house and care for the husband and nowadays, also works to augment the family income. Education starts within the family and if the mother is uneducated, it is possible that she will have a hard time teaching her kids the basic education. besides,men and women are equal and there are more women now working in big corporations and businesses. The importance of education for women cannot be underrated anymore.

Whether you stay at home or get a career, an education will always be beneficial, whether to a man or woman. I don't know why it seems that way to you, but I have seen an explosion of women in the workplace. In fact, in order to cope with the increasing costs, both parents are usually working now. You probably are referring to employment. Yes, there are still countries where women are not allowed to study, but you can count them in one hand. What can we do, there are people who are just plain backward.

I have great respect on the culture of other countries. However, I think on the part of "no education for women", if it still exists today, I am completely against it. I believe that education is and should be for all. It is a need, a right. Every person regardless of race, color, age, ability, gender, among others, is entitled to receive quality education. It is essential in every person's life. Even at a young age, all of us either we are a man or a woman have received our first education at home, from our parents. We have learned the basic skills in life right on our homes. It may not be like the formal education we have when we get older, but it is still a form of education. We were able to learn and discover things because we were taught and encouraged. If all of us were educated right in our very own homes in the first place, why can't all of us have it once more or continue it in school this time? I don't think that just because most women usually become house wives, they should be excluded in receiving quality education which is a basic human right. People should be more open-minded about this kind of belief. Women should not be treated less. They complete the cycle of life, they contribute to make this world a better place to live. Some or most of them may become full-time house wives but they don't need to be illiterate. Besides, they will still have their duties and responsibilities as a wife, mother, citizen, etc. They have a duty to also help their husbands in any way they can, teach their children, be a good citizen, and so on. They may not be able to perform these effectively or accordingly if they are not fully educated. Much more when other women choose not to be house wives. They need education to live a much better life, to have a more promising future. I didn't and I won't say, "to live a good life or a promising life" because in some instances or cases, uneducated people still survive and manage to succeed. We also need to give them credit for that. I think complete education is still the best though. It's great to know that for many years, women have evolved, in fact they still are. The perception about women, their roles and abilities have tremendously changed and improved. I think now, most of us, if not all, admire or look up the women of today. Women have widen their horizons, they have succeeded in many aspects, they have proved their worth in the society. There are fewer events or situations where we still witness or experience gender discrimination compared before where it is still a major or prevalent social problem or issue. Today, the list of male-dominated jobs or profession have decreased or lessen, even other activities and skills normally expected from the male population. We often hear or see stories about women who have proven that gender doesn't really matter. It's truly inspiring, it's an eye-opener for all of us indeed. This should be a constant reminder for all people that gender should not be an issue and/or a criteria to get the best things in life, more so in getting quality education. Every part of the society deserves it, every human being does. The world wouldn't be complete without women, so let's give them what they deserve. =)

education is really important for woman to make her life worth. most of the women end up vanishing into the bundle of expectations and responsibilities. but if they are educated, they always have a way out to avoid being exploited.

I think education is very important for everybody these days. It is no longer enough for a home to have only one breadwinner, and a proper education is essential if you want to have a better-paying job. I know for a fact that there are families where the woman works and the husband stays at home to take care of the children because the woman has a better salary than the man. It is however saddening that in some families, they give more priority to the men in the family to finish their studies. My aunt wasn't able to pursue her dream to become a doctor because her younger brother also wanted to be a doctor and the family can only afford to send one of them to med school. Even if my aunt had better grades, she had to give way to her brother because he is the "man" and therefore the priority to get higher education.

Hi visavis, Women have been kept down for centuries, and that is true all over the world. It was only in the latter half of the twentieth century that woman began to be accepted as equal with men, even in the west. A hundred years ago, a woman was not a person, but a man's property. In 1928, the Supreme Court of Canada (my country) unanimously decided against women holding public office on the grounds that they were not "persons,". I remember when some people didn't feel it was necessary for a girl to get an education, as her place was "in the home". Most people in the west today have accepted the fact that men and women are equal, and therefore it is as important for a woman to be educated as it is a man. It's very important that this fact be accepted worldwide and that is why women need an education wherever they live. Without an education women cannot fight for their rights as human beings. Blessings.

For me education is for everybody, and it is the right of women to choose to stay at home or work in firms, Eventhough a woman stay at home to take care of children, I think it is good to take care children if the woman finished her studies, Always remember that mother is the first teacher, So how a woman can impart knowledge to her children if she didn't finish her study, Thats why I believe that education is for everyone.
