In India, even though its developing country we have so many flaws with the education system. Only the middle-class people are lucky who can afford a good quality of education. People who fall under the middle-class line suffer a lot! They look like educated but they will live taboos and society bond regulations which make the major mark of gender inequality. Things become more complex when we have Indian society.
While the feminist movement has certainly promoted the importance of issues related to the education of women, the discussion is broad and by no means narrowly defined. This may include, for example, AIDS education. Universal education, that is, primary and secondary education provided by the state regardless of gender, is not yet a global standard, although it is presumed in most developed countries . In some western countries, women have surpassed men at many levels of education. For example, in the United States in 2005/2006, women obtained 62% of associated degrees, 58% of bachelor’s degrees, 60% of master’s degrees and 50% of doctorates.
The education of women with disabilities has also improved. In 2011, Giusi Spagnolo became the first woman with Down’s syndrome to obtain her university degree in Europe (she graduated from the University of Palermo in Italy). Improving the educational level of girls has been shown to have obvious effects on the health and economic future of young women, which in turn improves the prospects for their entire community. The infant mortality rate of babies whose mothers have received primary education is half that of children whose mothers are illiterate. In the poorest countries in the world, 50% of girls do not attend secondary school. Yet research shows that each additional year of school for girls increases their lifetime income by 15%. Improving the education of women, and therefore the earning potential of women, improves the standard of living of their own children, since women invest more of their income in their families than men. Yet many barriers to girls’ education remain. In some African countries, such as Burkina Faso, girls are unlikely to attend school for reasons as basic as the lack of private latrines for girls.
Higher attendance rates of high schools and university education among women, particularly in developing countries, have helped them make inroads to professional careers with better-paying salaries and wages. Education increases a woman’s (and her partner and the family’s) level of health and health awareness. Furthering women’s levels of education and advanced training also tends to lead to later ages of initiation of sexual activity and first intercourse, later age at first marriage, and later age at first childbirth, as well as an increased likelihood to remain single, have no children, or have no formal marriage and alternatively, have increasing levels of long-term partnerships. It can lead to higher rates of barrier and chemical contraceptive use (and a lower level of sexually transmitted infections among women and their partners and children), and can increase the level of resources available to women who divorce or are in a situation of domestic violence. It has been shown, in addition, to increase women’s communication with their partners and their employers, and to improve rates of civic participation such as voting or the holding of office.
