Education means training a person both mentally and morally. It changes all mental faculties of human beings into a harmonious one. So education should be universal. In this sense women should be educated by all means. But there are some people in the society who have prejudice against female education. They argue that women should be confined to the kitchen only. Their only duty is to rear up the children, perform the household duties and to look after the make members of the family. But they should realise that every women is essentially a mother. The future of a child depends on how he is taught by his mother in childhood. An educated mother can give an educated nation, an educated women can take social responsibilities. An educated wife can work as a right hand of her husband. So female education is necessary for any nation from every point of views.
