Women make society advance and modern as they play a vital role in the growth and development of society. We all heard the famous saying by the Brigham Young that, “You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.” Educating women is important not only for the development of the family but the development of the society as well. It is a well-known fact that “if a man is getting educated and empowered, only he can be benefited however if a woman is getting educated and empowered, whole family and society can be benefited.”
