Provision of educational opportunities for girls depends heavily on the cultural attitudes of the parents and community, and on the ability of parents and community to pay for girls to attend school in developing nations.
Often priority is given to male children versus female children. However in the US the culture is highly competitive and impersonal. A girl’s well being and safety depends on her ability to think for herself and, if necessary to earn a good living for herself and her children.
A good education is an asset which will benefit the girl, as well as her family for a lifetime. Therefore advocacy of education for girls and women is essential in both the developed and in the under developed nations of the world.
