Moral Right for the Education of Religious Women
An Instrument for Global Evangelization
Education is one of the basic human rights. Yet, it is denied to millions of people even today. Girl children and women are particularly victims of the denial of this fundamental human right. Although we can say that more girls than ever go to school today, girls continue to face discrimination based on gender and intersections with other factors like ethnicity, religion, caste, poverty, etc.1 Right to education is of vital importance when we remember that “education is not only a right in itself, but is also the surest way to empower individuals to enjoy all of their human rights. Education paves the way out of poverty and disempowerment, and opens up access to participation in society and in political decision-making.
