 In Access to Education for Women and Girls

Country: China
Delegate Name: Emily Elkantar

I as China believe we are neutral on this subject we are equally accessible for rights with men and woman but could be for the subject. Around the world 129 million girls are out of school, including 32 million of primary school age, 30 million of lower-secondary school age, and 67 million of upper-secondary school age.

Only 49% of countries have achieved gender parity in primary education. At the secondary level, the disparity is even wider: 42% of countries have achieved gender parity in lower-secondary education, and only 24% in upper-secondary education. Documented effects of improving access to education for women and girls include: increased lifetime earnings, higher national growth rates, declines in child marriage rates, decreased child and maternal mortality rates, and decreased child stunting. But even with these there are still obstacles that have to be faced to access education for these women and girls. Poverty, gender-based violence, and societal gender stereotypes are just a few such obstacles. Even when women and girls do have access to education facilities, many schools are unsafe. Others may use gender-biased teaching practices that result in gender gaps in learning and skills development, or that negatively influence women and girls’ decision to stay in school.

On the other hand it really isn’t worth it for the girls to get an education if they are just gonna be bullied out of it. They are never gonna fit in and are going to have to accept it if they want to get a better education but they can’t get mad at the change in behavior between the opposite gender.

We China can either be for or against a better education for women and girls. I am for both sides either can be signed off on but depends on the benefits and the profit I make out of it .
