Women Need Education Equality

There are many women in the world who are not receiving an education. With help from the USA we can give many more women a chance at education.

Dear Future President,

There are many problems in this world that you cannot fix, but one problem that we should consider ridding the world of is unequal education for women in developing countries. We need to make sure that all women and people have a chance for an equal education. Fixing this problem can help people all over the world have a better life. There are over 66 million girls who are not receiving an education and we need to change that.  We need to make sure that all girls can get an education and have a chance to learn.

While this may not seem important to all people around the world, it is important for everyone to get an equal education. An estimated 31 million girls are not receiving an education around the world.  An education can improve the way of life for many women and girls. An education can give women more chances in jobs and in life. Many women get married off as a young girl in these undeveloped countries and with and education it can stop many of these marriages. ("unicef.org/education") we need to make sure all of these 31 million girls and more can receive an education.

Most of the women not receiving an education are girls in male favoring countries who do not get a chance to get an education because they choose to send the boys to school. Another reason women do not receive an education is because some of the schools that offer girls education are expensive and they do not get a chance to learn because of cost. So we should work on getting all women and girls a chance to have an education.

My last reason is that many women do not receive an education is because of some rulers in their countries (dictators, kings). Many rulers do not think women should attend school because their place is in the home where they do the cleaning and cooking.("unicef.org/education"). 

In conclusion we need to draw our attention to the problems around the world for women who do not receive an education. We also need to find a way to create chances for women who can not affprd to go to school to attend school. Women can have better lives if we work to get equal education all around the world. We can improve the lives of many people if we give them a chance at an education.
