Madam, I believe all you said. In spite of the fact that I am a man, I am of the opinion that if women are given equal opportunity like men, their contribution to our society will be enormous. Just think of a family where you have three boys (who will later grow to become men) and one girl (who will also later grow to be woman) and they are given equal educational opportunity. At their later years, the parents will confirm that the girl contributes more to the welfare of their parents. So, if this singular opportunity is replicated on girls or women, in other fields of endeavour, I believe they will contribute more to the development of the society. Think of a family where the mother and the father are professors, the family always lack virtually nothing in terms of material wealth. I really subscribe to the think equal - act equal philosophy.
