Ending the Cycle of Tyranny
The greatest barrier in Pakistan is education, particularly female education. Greg Mortenson, humanitarian and co-author, in his book, Three cups of tea, narrate his contribution to help stop women illiteracy in Pakistan. Mortenson's mission is to promote awareness of the importance of primary education in remote areas of Pakistan, especially for girls. For that reason, his mission started from the building of one school, to the building of many, to women vocational centers. Three cups of tea has forced an interest in further exploring deprivation among Pakistani women. In one hand, Most of Pakistani parents deprive their daughters of basic education due to traditions and religious customs, which oppress women. Without the opportunity to receive and education women's chance for self-advancement are almost impossible. On the other hand, the barriers that Pakistani females face in order to get an education are many; however, Pakistani girls and women who are able to access education now, have a better chance of living than those who do not
Female education in Pakistan has never flourish; because to the corruption and lack of interest that the government has given on this issue. Since the foundation of Pakistan, primary education was a high priority in the education policy documents. The leading cause of the failure of these statements was due to the division of administrative institutions. In 1947 when Pakistan was created it had a tribal-feudal structure, which means that literacy was almost nonexistent because there were no human rights. The government and its institutions were giving more importance to the power (patronage) than to the interests of their citizens, including education. Bad policies, and the continuous failure of those, have lead women to miserable conditions. Through the years promises of giving free education to everybody including women were made, but they were never fulfilled. Therefore, the actual achievement has never been close to provide at least the primary education to women.
Simultaneously, the system that the government provides over education is another fact which contributes to women illiteracy. The government of Pakistan provided policies on the textbooks that shows the preference of men over women, "the emphasis was, and still remains, on the male figure, the skills he needs to be successful in the society" (A critical analysis of school enrollment and literacy rates of girls and women in Pakistan). Furthermore, more girls than boys are deprived of education due to government policies, "the government has done not much to help girls go to school. The textbooks picture a boy or man as a powerful, strong, and one who dominates every field of life, whereas the books depict a girl or a woman submissive, timid and one who is confined to the house and children" (A critical analysis of school...).As a result, girls lose the interest to get an education due to the humiliated pressure over them and end up leaving from school. As mentioned before, due to the oppression over women, we see a high dropout rate of girls at primary level, and the huge number of girls never at schools, "out of 500 girls, 22% never attended to school, and the other gave their reasons for leaving it, 26% left because of financial constraints, 18.7% because they lost interest" (a case of study of female literacy in Pakistan) Women are being humiliated and deprived from the right of going to school, because of the government being afraid to oppose the religious leaders and separate religion from politics. The male-dominated governance structure has been creating and recreating gender inequalities. It is critical for women to get access to education in order for them to claim their share of power to make decisions that affect their lives.
The lack of equality for women living under the religious Islam system; Hence, it is another fact of women illiteracy. First of all, men want women to believe that Islam is what is depriving them of many of their rights but it is not. It is not the religion itself it is the system that men have created to enforce their authority over women. First of all, rights for women under Islam are numerous but men usually do not want to give women those rights because they feel that those rights will give them less "power". Muslim men insist that their honor revolves around their women and it can be dishonored by the "inappropriate behavior" of going to school. For this purpose, Jan Goodwin, a renowned reporter and activist, in her book, Price of honor: Muslim women lift the veil of silence on the Islamic world, give the idea of what the extremist militant face of Islam really means for Muslims women. Goodwin explains that extremist fundamentalist Islam is the main reason for deteriorate of rights of Muslim women. "Restrictions on women are necessary", insists the extremist, "they are to protect women's honor, and they are also symbol of our enormous respect for women" (339). In other words, men increase their power at expense of women's rights. The essence of Goodwin's argument is that, most of the countries which say they practice Islamic law today, they do not. Extremist groups are hiding behind religion and making their own culture. If women do not have the right or the chance to get an education, how can they be aware of their rights, if they do not know how to read, how can they read this? It is stated, "Women have to remember that the prophet said, ‘Men and women are equal as two teeth on a comb' (Price of honor72). Islam prescribes equality for women. A woman will have less confidence when she is not educated, men find it easier to take advantage of or intimidate them. As we can see, with the opportunity to receive an education, women's chances for self-advancement are totally close to her. By going to school and learning to read, women can use the weapon once used against them but now to defend themselves. Women will be able to read their rights and to read what their religion really says. They will end up the cycle of ignorance and will open the door of a new world, the world of justice, equality and respect.
Consequently, some of the most notable barriers to female education is the lack of parents' education, which has a strong influence on children's education. If the parent is illiterate then the kid will be too. In fact, if the mothers are educated, kids will look up to her. The role that a women place in a children head is unique. The first school of a child is the lap of his mother. This is why the progress of the whole nation depends upon the way mothers bring up their kids. . Furthermore, in the future the whole society will progress, as a result of these kids having in their mind the goal of education, once taught by the example of their mothers. Also, another obstacle that Pakistani women face to get an education is poverty. A low level of income results in lack of access to education. Due to the lack of resources to survive women are force by their parents to watch upon working instead of education. Parents force them to concentrate on the informal education, giving them sew or cooking skills or on the sector of the labor market. On one side, educating females contributes to creating wealth its impact on economic level but because of the economic limitation that parents face, parents prefer to invest more one as son's education than of a girl. Parent insisted that a boy education must be a priority as they have to shoulder economic responsibilities of the family (The future of girls' education in Pakistan). In other words, poverty leaves parents in a crucible towards their kids. A family having more number of children and less income will prefer to educate the boys of the family, while girls are left to the house duties, and deprived of the chance to have a better future by getting an education.
Moreover, the long distances attend schools usually threat the personal security of girls. It is unsafe and it risks many girls of sexual abuse Girls have to travel long distances to reach the schools, for this reason most of the parents prefer to give them religious education. As a result we see a high dropout on girls, starting at the primary level, it is stated, "Girl's enrollment falls from 1,879,612 in grade 1 to 1,003,237 in grade 5" (A critical analysis of school...). Of those illiterate girls, 96.2% could not identify the alphabet, 3.8 % could read and none would write. Furthermore, 75.6 % of the girls had never attended any school (A case study of female literacy in Pakistan). Parents' economic budget can only reach towards one of their kids; in this case will be the boy, because of the responsibility he will have once married. It is also the difficult access of schools for girls what caused parents to be concerned about their girls safety. In short, with these barriers on parents' backs, girls are denied their right of going to school. Therefore, more education among the females means the more progress of society.
The consequences that women have to pay by being illiterate are disastrous. There is a decrease on the quality life for the whole family, for the whole community. Education is the key for overcome the barriers that women phase. Education will make them knowledgeable, will improve the health, not only for themselves but for the whole family, but most important it empowers woman, it gives them confidence to take their place in society. An uneducated woman will have less to offer to her children than one who receives a minimum of a basic education to survive. For instance, Girls who have been educated become women's with a career or at least with the skills they need to survive. Education gives them the power to pass their knowledge from generation to generation and end the cycle of ignorance and misery. "Muslim girls who have been educated in the west (Pakistan) are, of course, exposed to different values from those instilled at home" (Price of Honor 66). Goodwin's point is that, education can play a vital role in enhancing the status of women. There is no doubt that in Pakistan women's have to face socio cultural hurdles to acquire education and to get their right place in their society or community. As we can see, Basic education empowers women to read their rights, to defend themselves and to stop the tyranny in which they have been living on because of the ingenuity and lack of education. One girl can change the future, she can change anything but many women can change everything.
Besides, during the past decade, several initiatives of policies were taken, each with a strong component for improving girls' education in the country. For example, UNESCO has been developing numerous projects on encouraging girls to get an education, making education interesting and enjoyable for them. The goals of those policies are to provide universal primary education, more opportunities for girls' secondary education, and provide facilities for school. In 1992 the first one was called National Educational policy and continued from 1998-to 2010. The government of Pakistan launched the Social Action Programme (SAP1) in 1993-1994. The fist phase of SAP had positives results but not the ones waited for. It work specially on rural areas, however it remained poorly coordinated. Afterward, the second phase of SAP started from 1997 to 2002 with the purpose of overcoming those failures of the first phase (The future of girl's education in Pakistan. Chapter11). Women deprivation of education is what has caused them to be indefense and to accept whatever is told to them. The right kind of education for Pakistani women is the solution to poverty, and the solution for a better Pakistan. In my opinion, girls must have the chance to school and learn how to read. This basic skill will allow them to study their religion, and their rights. Women will know what it really says, and not accept someone else idea. It seems that the only way out of this cycle is a reform, political, cultural and economic. This reform will clean up the corruption on the system, and will end poverty because women education is the key to the prosperity of the whole community. This indeed, will result on women rights being respected.
In Pakistan, particularly in rural areas, women are situated at the bottom end of the educational system in comparison to their male counterparts. Traditionally, it is assumed that women are limited to their homes and men are dictators of the whole family. Educating woman revealed that education can bring phenomenal change in women's life by enhancing their confidence, raising their status in the family and society. Although women's education witnessed an improvement in the 90's, still Pakistan is considered to have a largest gender gap in literacy. This means, that education is not equal for everybody. The government should keep founding programs for girls' education and for schools to be in genuine conditions. Most important the government should make sure that those policies are achieved, as well as confront the extremists who do not want women to be equal to everyone else. Equally important, schools should be easy to reach, as well as founded in safe places. In short, girls are the most likely agents of change, because of girls are capable of raising the standard of living. Future Women will be part of a social and economic change in their community, but only if girls have the opportunity to get an education now; hence, women will contribute to their whole society. Educating girls and woman is one of the most highly investments in long term. Learning to read and to write opens up to a window of possibilities for girls in terms of their selconfidence and the capacity to avoid manipulation of their religion and rights,
