Iranian university bans on women causes consternation
With the start of the new Iranian academic year, a raft of restrictions on courses open to female students has been introduced, raising questions about the rights of women to education in Iran - and the long-term impact such exclusions might have.

Education is the key for women to move up the ladder of society. The idea that women is inferior than men has been embedded in our culture, even though there are people out there that believe women are as smart and strong enough to handle all the things that men do, but this number is just not enough. Many women has strive their best to be equal as any men out there, and the main element that enable them to slowly change the bias view of the world is through education. A women with knowledge is a respectable woman, she has the power to make people listen to her and the charisma that makes people follow her.
Without access to education, these women and girls will never claim their rights and will never have the power to make their own choices, securing a life of dignity for themselves and their daughters. Broken societies will never heal and economies never develop without education for all women and girls - it is that simple!

Importance of girls’/women’s education

http://www.right-to-education.org/node/187

Education is a right

Cultural changes

Better health and awareness

Poverty reduction

Education is a right
Why aren't girls in schools?
Men still dominate women in every country in the world, resulting in widespread discrimination against women and girls. The impact of unequal power relations and discrimination is often felt most severely when material poverty exists, as this increases vulnerability. Inequality in society inevitably has an impact on the provision and content of education, as well as on the ability of girls to enter, and remain in, school. See the following headings for further research:

Women aren't getting equal rights.
Female participation in the work force is low in ares where discrimination is high. (Goodman)

Social inequality is pronounced in countries with low female literacy rates.
Gender discrimination is a major problem; mostly in Africa and Asia.
Ownership rights
Civil liberties
Physical integrity (Goodman)
Cultural and traditional values
Fear of the power of what women may have through education.

Women's Education in the World
By: Rex, Zhidong, Yutang, William, Roy
The number of children out of school is greater than the total
population of New York City,London,Beijing,Mumbai,Tokyo,Mexico City,and Cairo put put together.
170 million
and of those children, are
girls
70%
Classroom Rules:
Boys, please move to the left side of the classroom by the windows and take all of your belongings with you since you will be here for the rest of the presentation.
Girls, please exit the classroom and wait outside of the door until you are allowed in.
Why did they leave?
In many Middle Eastern countries,
girls and women do not have access
to an education and a majority of classroomsare boys only.
In more than 20 developing nations, illiteracy rates amongst women exceed
70%
There has been some thing down, but it's far from enough.
>Gender discrimination is a major problem; mostly in Africa an Asia.
>Poverty
>Ownership rights
>Civil liberties
>Cultural and traditional values
>Fear of the power of what women may have through education
70%
of poverty worldwide is female
High education needed for job (No education=No job=poverty)
Because of these traditional gender labor roles, women are forced to spend around sixty percent of each day collecting water,
Life is tough for many poor girls in Africa. Culture and tradition often keeps them at home while their brothers go to school. Some girls are forced to marry when they are as young as 13 in exchange for a few cows.


If a girl convinces her family to send her to a “free” government school, she often cannot go because she lacks the funds for a uniform or supplies. And even if a girl begins primary school in Africa, she often doesn’t have the support she needs to continue through high school or college.
THE PROBLEM
92 million out-of-school children in the world;
62% of these are girls
60% of children attend secondary school world wide;
Only 20-25% attend in Africa
Poor Quality Education
Mistreatment
For every 100 boys enrolled in primary school in certain countries in Africa;
Only 80 girls are enrolled
THE SOLUTION
Increase the number of female teachers.
Abolish school fees.
Making primary education compulsory.
Sponsor a child!

Cradle of civilization
Make no social distinctions in teaching
The First Opium War
1900s
1920
1929
In the long feudal society,only men with proper social status had the access to education.
The old ADAGE goes:






Women were taught how to serve their parents,parents-in-law&husband from their early ages.
Ignorance is the virtue for women.
In that feudal society, women are regarded as accessories for men.
In the 19th century, along with the worldwide arousal of female conciousness ,

the social status for Chinese women is about to experience a dramatic
CHANGE
:
THE EFFECT
Education
Three times less likely to get HIV/AIDS
Earn 25% more income.
Smaller, healthier family.
The old China was forced to open by the British people , western thoughts were brought in.
THE REASONS
Unemployment and Large Families
Lack of Education
Poverty
Sexism
No Government Funding
Large Families
Orphaned Children
Poverty
Mistreatment of Girls
No Female Role Models
Sexual Harassment and Early Marriages
At that time , preachers flooded into China believed in
religions that had been
reformed
by the
capitalist class
during and after the
Bourgeois Revolution
period.
Liberty, Equality & Fraternity
became part of their
core value.
Protestants built a lot of female schools to expand their influence over China.
This , somehow , opened a way for
Chinese female education.
Hundred Days Reform
May 4th Movement
between
The real big development of female education started to happen
Qiu Jin (November 8, 1875 – July 15, 1907),
Chinese revolutionary, feminist and writer
Chinese women liberation movements
anti-footbinding movements
1919
1898
Cai Yuanpei , the president of Beijing University
(January 11, 1868 – March 5, 1940)
Single-track education system
teaching without gender distinction
Equal education right between men and women was first declared by legislation in Chinese history.

Reasons
Suggestions
What should the government do:
Make education up to a certain grade free
Make laws to protect women's right
What can organizations/businesses do:
Get people to donate money, use it to build schools
Have speakers convince importance of education
What individuals can do:
Give lessons at home
Help organizations/businesses by donating money
Donate books to schools in need
Treat women equally
Statistics :
enrollment rate
Current problems in mainland China
for primary school
For the year of

2006
is
99.15%
Debate Topics!!!
-Do you think religion or cultural traditions in these regions have affected women’s education the most? Why?
-Do you think male advocates for women’s rights, especially for their education, will increase the response and therefore increase women’s education?
-Why do you think people are more open to women's education in the US/Europe than in the Middle East and Africa?
99.14%
99.16%
dropout rate for primary school
0.45%
0.47%
not mentioned
rural girls make up most part of the dropout rate
Detailed data :
1987 female students took up 83% of the total dropout rate
1995 66.4%
2000 58.52%
Anylasis:
Causes
consciousness level deficiency
policy level deficiency
1. Prejudice against women is still rooted in
remote rural areas
2. In textbooks ,
19%
of the images are about
women , among which , women tend to be
shown as
teachers, nurses
&
waitress.
on the other hand,
scientists

&

leaders
often
appear as male images.
1. Imbalanced educational fund distribution
2. Legal defination of equality for educational
right is unstressed
3. Inadequate implementation of the Law On
Compulsory Education.
Conclusion :
As part of the worldwide women liberation
though the situation for Chinese women has been improved a lot , the undertaking of Chinese female education still has a long way to go.
This seems to be an endless nightmare for women.

When we asked parents why they did not allow their girls to school, they would say "because it's wrong, it's irreligious, it's improper - they should stay at home to prepare for their real life, their married life"
