Baraka Project on Gender Equality
WOW! Definitely the first thought that came to my mind. Watching this video put a knot in my stomach and kept me on the verge tears. The statistics shown in this clip are just a few, but still have a major impact on the viewer. In regards to "education is the answer," I do agree to some extent. I believe educating more women would obviously help in many ways and would begin solving problems faced in our everyday lives. Is education the only solution? Will it solve everything? No, I don't believe education will solve everything. In my opinion, there is no one solution to any problem or set of problems. The given examples in this video are true, such as the one about decreasing levels of poverty and women being able to be more independent if they are treated equally in the work force, being able to obtain an equal position to any man. Education is a big step in solving these problems, and gender equality in education will only make this step easier.
