Women education and issues


Rajan Trivedi

Women education could also be a catch-all term of a complicated set of issues and debates surrounding education (primary education, education, tertiary education, and health education in particular) for ladies and ladies. It includes areas of gender equality and access to education. The education of women and girls is significant connection to the alleviation of poverty. Broader related topics include single-sex education and religious education for girls, during which education is split gender lines. Inequalities in education for ladies and ladies are complex: women and girls face explicit barriers to entry to high school, as an example, violence against women or prohibitions of girls from getting to school, while other problems are more systematic and fewer explicit, as an example, science, technology, engineering and arithmetic (STEM) education disparities are deep rooted, even in Europe and North America. In some Western countries, women have surpassed men at many levels of education. For instance, within us in 2005/2006, women earned 62% of associate degrees, 58% of bachelor's degrees, 60% of master's degrees, and 50% of doctorates.
