Women's education is considered to be one of their basic rights, but many of them are deprived of it due to several factors such as poverty, early marriage, and some economic and social restrictions.
However, several international organizations have been emerging to defend women and to demand the rights of equality between men and women for access to education. Several studies have proven that women’s access to education is reflected positively on many personal, societal, and economic aspects. Education enhances women’s capabilities and helps them create a knowledgeable society that has peace and prosperity among each other.
The right to education brings many benefits to women and society, including:
Raising the level of health awareness
Education helps in raising the level of health awareness, as it has been shown that the access of women to education contributes to reducing the mortality rate in the world.
Reducing early marriage cases
Studies have shown that some of the women's education level is associated with early marriage and the negative consequences that follow.
Raising the standard of living
Education is an essential support for achieving the goals that women aspire during their lifetime. Women exert their efforts in education until they obtain a prominent job position that benefits them to improve their standard of living. Education plays a vital role in improving the psychological aspect of women by enhancing their self-confidence and enabling them to make the right decisions.
Education enhances psychological abilities and personal skills by improving physical and mental skills and increasing the ability to think, comprehend, and think outside the box. It also makes women more powerful to handle difficulties and to deal with different life situations.
