During the British ruling India some noble social thinkers of the time paid their attention to the education of woman in our country. Raja Ram Mohan Ray, Iswara Chandra Vidyasagar was famous reformers who gave emphasis on the education of women. They put forth a very strong argument. “Man and woman are like the two sides of a coin. Without one, the other cannot exist”. They help each other in every sphere. Where are we standing when it comes to men and women’s education in our family and in our society? Therefore, education should be given to both man and woman at equal level and balance it well. Women’s can do what a men can do and performed better than a men. Further, women are the mothers of the future generation. If women are uneducated, the future generations will be uneducated. For this reason the Greek warrior Napoleon once said, "Give me a few educated mothers; I shall give you a heroic race."
In day-to-day life, women first face the real problems 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. Which will further lead to development in the family, and once a family in the society is develop the so-called development in the society will come into exist.
Very often, the workers of some families become handicapped in unfortunate accidents. In that situation, the complete burden of the family rests on the women of the families. To meet these exigency women should be more educated. They should be employee more in different spheres. Our culture must give the opportunity for education to the women. Women should not only engaged in housewife in the family, Women can work in different sectors and engage more in teachers, doctors, lawyers and administrators or any available job base on their skills and knowledge. Educated women are good mothers.
Therefore, Education of women will be helpful in eradicating many social evils such as dowry problem, unemployment problem, etc. Social peace can easily be established if all the women’s in the society/country are educated as the men did.
