1. Human trafficking: women are most vulnerable to trafficking when they are undereducated and poor.

2. Political Representation: Across the globe, women are underrepresented as voters and restricted from political involvement. The United Nations Women's programmes on leadership and participation suggests that civic education, training and all empowerment will ease this gap.

3.Thriving Babies: According to the United Nations Girl's Education Invitation, children of education mothers are twice as likely to survive past that age of five. Foreign aid for schoolhouse and curriculum development could greatly benefit the East African country of Burundi, where nearly 16,000 children die per year.

4. Safe sex: A girl who completes primary school is three times less likely to contract HIV. With these statistics a "window of hope" in preventing the spread of AIDS among today's children.

5.Later Marriage: in underdeveloped countries, one in every three girls is married before reaching the age of 18. In a region where a girl receives seven or more years of education, the wedding date is delayed by four years as suggested by the United Nations population Fund.

6.Smaller Families: Increased participation in school reduces fertility rates over time. In. Mali, women with secondary education or higher have an average of three children. Counterparts with no education have an average of seven children.

7. Income potential: Education also empowers a woman's wallet by boosting her earning capabilities. A single year of primary education has shown to increase a girl's wages later in life by 20 percent according to the UNESCO.

8. Thriving GDP: Gross domestic product also soars when both girls and boys are being offered educational opportunities. When 10 percent more women attend school, GDP increase by three percent on average.

9. Poverty Reduction: When women are provided with equal rights and equal access to education, they go on to participate in business and economic activity. Increased earing power and income combat against current ans future poverty through feeding, clothing and providing for entire families.

"The future must not belong to those who bully women. It must be shaped by girls who go to school and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons"
