Girls who read are dangerous
If the fact that an educated woman is dangerous seems farfetched to you, take a cue from the intensity of efforts devoted to keeping girls out of school in many parts of the world, thereby promoting ignorance.
Many ignorant people deem it improper to be adequately educated as a woman because they feel threatened when they realize that a woman armed with knowledge is armed with power, which is true.
