In the past, our women folk were confined within the four walls of home. Parents did not allow them to receive education.
An educated husband can never have free exchange of ideas with an ignorant wife. Life would be dull and unhappy for them. Frequent quarrels may result from such a lack of understanding. So female education is essential from this point of view.
Parents also thought it waste of time and money to educate their girls. They did not understand that if girl children were educated they could be as competent as male children.
Early marriage, religious misinterpretation and the narrowness of our outlook created bar to the path of education.
All necessary steps should be taken to encourage universal female education. Education for girls up to degree level has been made free with a monthly stipend. More schools and colleges for girls are being set up to spread female education. If a mother is not educated, the child is not taken care of properly. So, all of us should come forward to spread female education.
