When a woman is not educated then it not only affects her but the entire family and in turn entire nation. An educated woman can be a better human being, a successful mother and a responsible citizen. Educating women results in promoting self-respect and also helps in raising the status of women. An educated woman will be aware of her rights. She can fight against social evils.”
