‘Girl power’ is a slogan that encourages and celebrates women’s empowerment, independence, and confidence and refers to the ability for women to enjoy their rights to control and benefit from resources, assets, income and their own time, as well as the ability to manage risk and improve their economic status and wellbeing.
Sometimes girls just want to have fun; but sometimes they want to rule the World.
Improving education for women helps raise their levels of health and nutrition, and reduces fertility rates.
Education increases people’s self-confidence and enables them to find better jobs, engage in public debate and make demands on government for health care, social security and other entitlements.
In particular, education empowers women to make choices that improve their own and their children’s health and chances of survival.
Further, education empowers women to make choices that improve their welfare, including marrying later and having fewer children.
