In the present day Indian context, education for women is more imperative. India, for example, is trying to implement family planning through education. Much population increase occurs in illiterate families where both men and women are uneducated. Educated women can understand the need of a planned family for the happiness of the family and the country as a whole.
An educated women can have a indirect influence on the men mused Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. A women who has been trained in various things can act as a great influence on the child. Some of the best schools in our cities will tell the parents that a child’s progress in education depends as much on the parents as on the teachers.
A child learns from home, school and the environment. Hence, an educated mother has a great responsibility to educate her child properly. This is much more so in a developing nation like India.
To make India a prosperous country, every man and every woman in the nation must be educated. Women’s education is of prime importance, for they have been neglected in our country until recently. Women in India have outnumbered the men, hence they must be made literate for the all round development of the country.
