I met Karen Taylor during the Portland Experience photo walk. Karen sees Girls Education as a needed change in the world and I couldn’t agree more!
In some countries, girls withdraw from school early due to a variety of reasons that may involve puberty, a need to help in the household, marriage, children and other reasons.
In first world countries, teen pregnancy or mental health may cause girls to leave school.
We also need to improve access to education everywhere to empower women in every society. These women will then go on to innovate and create change throughout their communities; they will create jobs and have an improved standing of living.
Female education was also discussed as a way to encourage female entrepreneurs to not only launch entrepreneurial pursuits but to also scale their businesses on par or in excess of their male counterparts.
Karen, thank you for sharing. Change in Girls education is needed everywhere.
