Women education in this modern era is a delicate issue, which the world at large is picking interest in.
In varying cultures and societies across the globe, women are being denied access to education because they feel the women should not be educated like the men, thus should be uneducated and remain submissive to the men.
But the story is quite different today. Now, more women are able to go school, get employed, apply for scholarships, just to name a few.
Yet still, there are women who are not interested in education, whilst there are others who wants to be in school but lack the finance to make it happen.
Therefore, schools and multiple organisations seek to make it possible for the willing ones to be educated.
By providing financial aids of various types, such as school grahnts, student loans, free bursary, etc.
