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.

This is also because learned women are in sharp contrast to what some ignorant societies deem to be ideal- having babies, cooking and cleaning, being a docile wife sex slave et cetera.
More than knowing history and the law, an educated woman knows her rights, particularly her right to be treated as a lady, who has the power to choose a career path and, especially a life partner (yes, many women the world don’t have that right)
Why will a woman want to read anyway?
