The big picture: education of women

Every human being with free mental capacity does think from time to time about the future of the world in the next 100 or 200 years.

It used to be different: the world was the outside, immensely large and full of dangers, imponderables and possibilities. The largest units, whose future people were thinking about, were empires or states. Since some decades, however, the world has become our common home, or rather, our common property, where we know and can reach almost all the rooms and corners and stretches of land, and the people living on it are slowly changing into a community of fate. The world is becoming more and more “inside”, and for the “outside”, only the empty space is remaining.

One of the main concerns is, that very many people are already living on the property, and more are added every day. The question of whether the world as a whole can carry the multitude of people on it is historically new. So far, the answer is yes (with the exception of severe underdevelopment and war), and it is not unreasonable to do so for the future. But climate change is raising serious doubts about this optimism.

In the search for a means to reduce population growth, the education of women is striking. Not only have the countries with the best educated women the lowest number of births per woman, but also within the social structure of a country, the most educated women are those with the fewest children. However, the birth rate also has strong local influences: the number of children per woman is twice as high in Tanzania as in India despite the same average education .

What can we, in the western metropolises, contribute to fostering women’s education and training in less developed areas? Well, money helps, money is esteem. A Google search for “donation education of women” or similar will lead to success here.

Apart from the birth rate, education and especially that of women is very positive for themselves and their environment, so channeling means into it is a very effective aid in general.
