Struggles of Girls Education:

The beginning of the women's struggles entered India during the British period. During the 18th and the 19th century, women all around the globe were fighting for civil and other human rights for themself. The struggles, ideas, and development for girls and women also traveled to India. Thus, in the year 1853, a bishop suggested some sisters visit India to promote female education and gave birth to the idea of women empowerment. This carved a path into the establishment of the first all-girls school in Mussoorie, which is also the oldest convent school, namely Convent of Jesus and Mary, Waverley, Mussoorie, conducted by the Religious Sisters of Jesus and Mary. Also, during the 1850s, several women of the British officials raised their voices and demanded female education. This forced several old schools to convert themself into co-ed schools then being all-boys schools. Woodstock is amongst the best international schools in India.

Why is there a need to prioritize women's education?

For the last several known decades, women have always been considered as a weaker section of society. Education has become a major part of society, and about 70-75% of the female population of the nation is literate. Getting an education in school, knowing alphabets, or being skilled to read or write isn't what education is primarily purposed for. Unless you utilize your mental resources, equip your conquered education and do something better for society, you are nothing, just useless.

Women need to take charge, realize how necessary it is for them to be financially independent, and stand strong. One must always stand strong on her feet to be able to fight instead of being dominated, tortured, or harassed. Being a girl, you have to gather the trust of the people nearby. You have proved your abilities and still face discrimination. You might
