  • Yes, both are needed

    I think the structure of this question speaks for the need of the first part of it. With regards to the second, as long as sexism exists, there will be a need for something to combat it. That comes in the form of Title IX and others, they're needed until society proves it'll carry on what they promote without them.

  • Yes, education and women empowerment is necessary.

    In many parts of the world are still not allowed a chance at a safe education. Just look at what happened to Malala Yousafzi, the young girl shot by the Taliban for speaking out for girls‘ rights to education. Women will not be able to have the same opportunities as men without an education, and our society has to continually promote them until the whole world is on the same page.

  • Yes it is

    In words of Swami Vivekananda "The can be no development of the society unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly with one wing". Thus it is imperative to educate women about there social and legal rights.Our society is undergoing the same societal transformation which the western societies have undergone because of modernization. And those brainy westerners are now scratching their heads for a solution for breakdown of family unit in their nations. Individual is important but much more important is society and the healthy perpetuation of our species. Let us become modern in our own Indian way. Let us be original at least in this and blindly ape the westerners. Indian society is male dominant and feudalistic, where women are not only looked down upon, but also widely discriminated against.

  • Educarion for women necesary

    Women should lag behind men for any reasons.She sholud have all the rights that a man has.Education one one of the most necessay thing a woman should haveWomen want to be treated as equals so much so that if a woman rises to the top of her field it should be a commonplace occurrence that draws nothing more than a raised eyebrow at the gender. .

  • Yes it is

    Men still have an advantage in that area of 100 years, leaving women with a huge deficit. Women's dignity and respect is being threatened everywhere. Starting from sex determination to her not going to college, to the dowry system, we're killing her day by day! After marriage, domestic violence brings out its dirty black face. A woman has no freedom to present her views, to live her own life.

  • Yes, education is important for empowerment

    Knowledge is so important to an individual feeling confident and being able to grow and reach their true potential. Knowledge begets empowerment by allowing an individual to feel confident in their ability to not only interpret information but apply it in a way that allows them to make more informed decisions ultimately empowering them.

  • Yes, education and women empowerment is necessary.

    Empowering women and their education is very important. In American, women, for the most part, did not get to go to college until after the Civil War. Men still have an advantage in that area of 100 years, leaving women with a huge deficit.

    In many parts of the world are still not allowed a chance at a safe education. Just look at what happened to Malala Yousafzi, the young girl shot by the Taliban for speaking out for girls‘ rights to education. Women will not be able to have the same opportunities as men without an education, and our society has to continually promote them until the whole world is on the same page.

  • Education is necessary, but women's empowerment is our luxury.

    First off, I find it to be a joke that the asker decided to throw education into the title. It makes anyone who says "No" look like an anti-education infidel. Secondly, a lot of people who are on the "yes" side need to look up what "necessary" really means, unless they intend to redefine the word "need."

    Considering the fact that human civilization has been around for well over 6,000 years, and the fact that we as a nation lasted about 200 without "women's empowerment," I feel that I have both the right and the leverage to claim that women's empowerment has no bearing on the success of our country, its existence serves as a luxury for our people, and a testament to the greatness of Western culture.

    I cite the pre-20th century world as my example. We had great nations of unfathomable strength, with both impoverished and wealthy citizens. They needed women to be able to survive. Homemaking, however, was the only job required of a woman who ended up giving birth to the citizens of tomorrow. Men worked outside of the home, women worked in the home. Americans did it for generations. It worked pretty well, and then felt that we could afford the luxury of the concept of "equality."

    IN A NUTSHELL: Is America a great country? Yes. Does education have anything to do with that? Yes. Do women's rights have anything to do with that? No.
