Women must be successful

Posted April 13, 2021 from Cameroon

In most developing countries the success rate of girls and women is very small because women don't get it easy in getting educated.

Getting educated as a girl or woman is a right and not a privilege.

Some women and girls have the opportunity to go to school but they are being denied by their parents and guardians because they believe education is meant for men and not women because they think marriage is the best option for women.

Due to the socio political crisis in some part of the world many girls have become dropouts from school,some have become farmers reason being that some parents due to poverty have put their male children in preference than their female children.

Statistics shows that two thirds of the world's illiterate adults are women.

Some girls or women have decided to move in with men they are not married to due to frustration that has led to unwanted pregnancies thus reducing the chance of success.

Women let's stand for our sisters to make the world understand that education to a woman is a right not a privilege.

If a girl child is educated she will be able to know how to take care of herself by practising good hygiene,she will be able to take care of her children, husband , family more better,if she is educated she will know if she doesn't have an income or job she shouldn't have many children thus making use of contraceptives to avoid unwanted pregnancies that maybe she will want to get it aborted then she looses her life.

Parents need to be educated on getting their girls educated .

Some of this girls don't get educated too because some have to trek miles most especially in rural areas to attend school due to the fear of this girls getting raped some of their parents will prefer they stay home.

Most girls become dropouts because of child marriages once they get married the next thing the man wants is for this girl to start making babies for him and off course increase in illiteracy for women.

 

Women we can do it be active in your community ,educate parents and guardians that education is a right to a girl child and not a privilege thus increase in success and a better society for women of tomorrow.

Hello Tati,
Welcome to the Pulse. It is good to see many more Cameroonians joining this amazing family and platform. Thank you for shedding light on the challenges girls face in many societies around the world today. There is no denying the fact that an educated woman is a powerful asset to herself, her family, her community and the world at large. There is indeed need to let parents see the benefits of sending their girl children to school.

Looking forward to more posts from you.

I live in a country where girls do have access to education. We can see the positive impact of that as more women become leaders in their communities and bring in much needed change. I appreciate you telling us about the challenges women face in developing countries. Knowledge and understanding is the first step to making change.

Thank you for sharing. Everyone should have an equal opportunities to attend education. Knowledge can change their life. Girls and women can make contribution to the society also.
Hope the situation can improve! It is necessary to bring general awareness on the importance of education to girls.
May Almighty God bless them!

Hello Tati thanks for sharing and for shedding more light on this sensitive topic. Education we all know is a bridging gat for the male and female for the rich and the poor.
Many women like you and me who have had the opportunity to be educated have significantly changed the narrative of our communities. So parents should start investing in the education of the girl child.

Hello Tati,
Those statistics are grim and disappointing, but also a fan to the fire of pushing for education for our girls and mentoring them to know that they can be defined as whole and successful without a man's aid. But the slay-queen mentality among young girls , is still pervasive today and more so than before, even among girls who are educated. It has been bothering me for some time. Is it the same in your country? Do you have any thoughts on how to help girls out of that desperation?

Thanks Nini,Yeah is same here in my country.
My thoughts in helping girls get out of that desperation is to continue educating them like a mother who is not tired of correcting her child,most especially through. social media platforms which is mostly used by them making them to understand that is not all about today but about tomorrow
