Education is very essential for every one because it is the only thing by which we can differentiate between human beings and animals. Education tells us that how can we live in a society that’s why education is important for every one, for both men and women.
In past, women did not receive any education at all. They were not allowed to come out of the four walls of their houses. Domestic works were their only education. But now we are living in 21th centaury where there is no any difference between men and women. In this century women have the same respect as men have. They help each other in every sphere. So education should be given to both men and women.

You educate a MAN , you educate a MAN .
You educate a WOMEN , you educate a GENERATION
There are certain reasons that girls must be educated. First reason is this that human resources without education cannot be properly utilized. Whether women opt for jobs or not, education is necessary for them. If they are doing jobs, they are useful to the family in one way. If they are educated but not doing jobs, they are useful in another way. The main role of a woman in practical life is of a wife and a mother. If she is educated, she can become a helping hand to her husband in many ways. If she is illiterate, she cannot keep pace with the situation. As a mother she is of great help to the family. The way she can guide and teach her children is far better than any external help.
Women are more than fifty percent of the population. They play an important role in the society. It is quite necessary to enlighten them with education. The government has taken certain steps for providing education to girls from primary to higher level, but still a lot is required to be done.
NELSON MANDELA said
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
In day to day life, the real problems are faced first by women and then the same problems are conveyed to men for solution.
If the women are educated, they can solve all the problems of their houses. It is said that when ever any men get education it is only useful for him but when ever any women get education it is useful for whole family. An educated woman gives an educated family and an educated family can makes society better. We can not imagine a god society without the education of women. If a woman will not get education how will she manage whole family?
Man and woman are like the two sides of a coin. Without one, the other cannot exist. Education women can not only give an educated family but Education of women can also be helpful in eradicating many social evils such as dowry problem, unemployment problem, etc. Social peace can easily be established. A woman has to play three distinct parts in the course of her life in each of which certain duties are expected of her. The first duty of a woman is to be a good daughter. The second is to be a good wife. And the third is to be a good mother. Education teaches a mother what she should be. It also teaches her how she would do it to be a good daughter, a good wife and a good mother.
Only With the help of education women can know their rights .Woman belongs to a weaker section of the society because she suffers from many handicaps due to rigid, outdated social customs and religious practices. But an educated woman cannot be exploited easily. She is aware of her rights and will go any length to defend them..
The world is continuously changing around us with every ticking of the clock. We have got to make people aware that knowledge is a power and they have got to acquire it with zeal. It is a religious obligation as well. The prophet of Islam Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him said: Seek knowledge even you have to travel to China. It must also be remembered that education is imperative for all i.e. men and women
