Roles of Women in Society Development/Nation Building

Women play an important role in the development and progress of the society. A developed and prosperous society cannot be imagined without them.

There is a famous saying by Brigham Young that ‘If you are educating one man, you are educating only one man, but if you are educating a woman, you are educating the whole generation to come‘.

For the development of the society, it is very important that girls should not be allowed to lack in education because they have to give a new direction to the society along with the boys in the coming time.

If the words of Brigham Young are to be considered true, then according to that, if a man is educated, then he will be able to develop only himself, but if a woman gets the right education, then she has the power to change the whole society along with her.

Human life cannot be imagined without women. It would be called madness to ignore their talents only on the logic that they are less powerful and less virtuous than men.

Women represent about more than half the population of Nepal. If their potential is not taken care of, it clearly means that more than half of the population of the country will remain uneducated. If women are not educated then that country will never be able to progress.

We have to understand that if a woman, being illiterate, manages the house so well, then how well an educated woman will handle the society and the country.

Women make the family, the family makes the house, the home makes the society and the society makes the country. It simply clears that the contribution of women is everywhere.

It is pointless to imagine society ignoring the potential of women. Without education and women empowerment, development of family, society and country cannot take place. A woman knows when and how to deal with troubles.

Earlier the condition of women was worse than that of slaves. If a woman gave birth to a girl, she was either killed or beaten up by the members of the household. Giving birth a girl was regarded as a sin. They were only expected to give birth a boy.

But with the changing times, the situation changed. Now people are more aware than before and have started coming forward to help women. Much still remains to be done in this direction.
