25 Women’s Education Quotes that Prove School Matters


Education is the key for women to achieve economic independence. Although women in the majority of countries have the right to an education, equal access to education for women remains a problem.

In developing and developed countries alike, millions women do not finish school because they are forced (by their society, by their circumstances or by the threat of violence) to focus on household, caregiving and child-rearing responsibilities.

For the women who are struggling to access education, and for those who want to end educational inequality, I hope that these education quotes inspire you to make a change!
