Transcript of Education for all (Frankie & Kaysa)

By: Kaysa Jinan & Frankie Hession Education for all! Introduction Problem Statement Call for Action Resolution Sources Currently in Pakistan, females are being prevented from receiving any form of education while males are allowed to attend school and receive any education they want. This is a problem because females should be allowed to have the right to receive the education they want just like males do. Females that try to get an education will be threatened, get acid thrown in their face or even killed by the Taliban. The public should care because this is a major human rights violation to thousands of women. Many other children in the world have the right to a free public education and females in Pakistan should get the same. Statistics and Data Detractors Ideal Solution List of contacts Persuasive Paragraph Bumps in the road "Although school enrollment in Pakistan has increased by over 3 million since 1999, more than 5 million children are still without an education; 63% of them –over 3 million–, are girls. Two-thirds of the 49.5 million illiterate Pakistani adults are women. Despite these difficulties, the percentage of poorest girls out of school has fallen from 78% to 62%." (http://www.unesco.org/new/en/media-services/single-view/news/unesco_and_pakistan_stand_up_for_girls_right_to_education/)

"The state of girls’ education in Pakistan is far from optimal. There are 7.261 million children out of school at the primary level, and 58 percent are female." (http://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/voices/right-education-girls-pakistan-malala-s-struggle-must-continue)

"Official statistics released by the Federal Education Ministry of Pakistan give a desperate picture of education for all, especially for girls. The overall literacy rate is 46 percent, while only 26 percent of girls are literate. Independent sources and educational experts, however, are skeptical. They place the overall literacy rate at 26 percent and the rate for girls and women at 12 percent, contending that the higher figures include people who can handle little more than a signature. There are 163,000 primary schools in Pakistan, of which merely 40,000 cater to girls. Of these, 15,000 are in Punjab Province, 13,000 in Sind, 8,000 in North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) and 4,000 in Baluchistan." (http://www.unesco.org/education/efa/know_sharing/grassroots_stories/pakistan_2.shtml)

These statistics and data show that many women in Pakistan are without an education. Most of them have never even received any form of education. This is important because this is a major human rights violation that must be resolved. No one should be deprived of an education because of their gender.

(http://www.unesco.org/education/efa/know_sharing/grassroots_stories/pakistan_2.shtml) Letters PICTURES The issue that we are trying to resolve is women's education rights violations in Pakistan. Currently in Pakistan, females are being prevented from receiving any form of education. While males are allowed to attend any school and receive any education they want to. First, this issue is important because this is a human rights violation. Women in Pakistan are being treated unfairly, while males are allowed to receive any form of education. This affects the audience because there could be many women in Pakistan that if they got an education they could make a difference in the world and help others.
Secondly, women without an education will most likely have a hard time creating their future and finding a career. This affects the audience because women could create a business and create jobs for people. But since their not getting an education they can't do that and there won't be more jobs.
There are people in the world that are sexist and don't believe that women can have a career in the world. But they are wrong because it doesn't matter what gender a person is, that person is still a human being and can do anything in the world just like everyone else.
There are people all over the world who will say that education is not that important and anybody could shape their future without an education. Almost everybody that is well educated in the world are successful in life. Without an education it is almost impossible to make a career on your own. If everyone was educated it would be more likely for those people to get into a good college or get a good career. If males in Pakistan get an education than it would be fair if all the women get the same right in Pakistan.
There are many women in Pakistan who want to go far in life and receive an education to make a career. If this problem is solved, women in Pakistan would be able to reach for their dreams and make a difference in the world. Our Ideas:
We were thinking of making a blog, but if we want to make a blog we would have to do something before that so that people are aware of it. We were thinking of making posters that can be hung anywhere around the area, that shows our blog address and the purpose of our blog. In the blog we will be talking about our issue and how we would like to help solve the issue in Pakistan. Hoping that making a blog will help resolve the issue. Then, if it reaches to the point where there are loads amount of viewers and participants in the cause, we would provide pins that represent our issue to get more help from people and maybe even major businesses to help us. PIN The main obstacle for women not getting an education in Pakistan is ..

- The Taliban: Many schools are being destroyed by the Taliban. Even when women try to go to a school that is still working the Taliban will throw acid in their face or even shoot them. People in Pakistan are too afraid to confront the Taliban about this issue because the Taliban are heavily armed and they are dangerous/powerful.

- Another detractor to women's education in Pakistan is the Pakistani culture. In the Pakistan culture most women are not allowed to attend school. Because they believe that women have to stay home and do house work while men are allowed to attend school and have a career. Education Envoy: This organization are trying to end all the violence that are being targeted towards women who are fighting for their rights to education.

International Peace Commission: This organization is trying to help support everyone's rights. Getting a free education is one of the right that they are trying to give to teenagers/adults in Pakistan.

Human Right Watch: This organization is involved in pretty much all human rights violations around the world. They try to do as much as they can to resolve all human rights violations, including our human rights violation.

Pakistani Women's Human Rights Organization: This organization is very involved in trying to help women's rights violations all throughout Pakistan. Including education. This organization has helped save lives in Pakistan. (http://educationenvoy.org) A bump in the road that must be resolved is that we must enforce the human right of education for women in Pakistan. Also, there must be more schools in Pakistan to take more people if this issue is resolved because women will be going to school. Ways to solve this problem -Pass a law in Pakistan for women to be able to
go to school and get any education that they want, just like men do.

-We have to change the minds of the Pakistani culture because everybody thinks that women should stay home. We have to show them that women can make achievements in life by showing them statistics and data. If our issue was resolved all genders in Pakistan would be able to get an education and would be able to think of ways to help and improve their country. Women can do just the same as men can so they should get the same rights, including education. We must accomplish this goal because not only is it unfair to women to not have access to education, but it's one of the human rights. If that human right isn't in Pakistan then it's a human rights violation and that is a major issue that must be resolved. Women can make a difference in the world; with the help of an education, they can reach for the stars! We have not received any response from any of organizations that we have sent our letters to.
