Did you know that about 1.1 million children are out of school and 69% of them are girls, Hi my name is Issa Aldahmi and my project is about women’s education in yemen, men have the most power over the issue because they decide what women should and should not do. Many girls are forced into young marriage and they are forced to drop out of school to take care of the house and their family, and on top that 2 years ago the Yemen Civil War started and some effects are that there were more than 3,000 schools destroyed and this made even more girls and boys to leave school.
I chose this topic because nobody knows how much it is affecting women and only a small amount of people are trying to help out and yemen is small country and big countries are not paying attention to how we are being affected and I see education is a big part of everyone’s life.
In a website called Yemeni Women’s Uphill Struggle for Education it talks about how some women don’t have a choice and they have to drop out for their families and there are not enough schools that are close to people and how they have to travel to go to school and some people don’t have the money to go at a certain school or a close school and it’s not fair i think we should just build more school. A second sources, a news article called Girls in yemen still less likely than boys to go to school and it talks about about the different percentage of men and women who attend school in yemen and it is mostly men and less women and it also talks about some of the reasons that women for example family work or early marriage.
In an Academic source called Education in Yemen Struggles after More than a Year of Conflict, it talks about how the yemen civil war has affected over 1 million children to stop going to school and women are being affected more because before the war the women percentage was way less than men who go to school and it has gotten even worse with the war. In another source, a film called In Yemen, Breaking Barriers to Girls’ Education it talks about how some girls have to get out of school and do housework and take care of the house and it’s unfair because they should be getting their education but instead they stay at home or getting married in a young age. And it also talks about possible solutions that can help with getting girls to go back to school.
