Civilization is measured by the woman. If you want to take the world down, the place of attack is the female. If you want to build a world up, you start with the female. A woman is three-times the value of a man, because she brings forth life. Women teach and train the off-spring. So, if you are an ignorant, unlettered and foolish woman, you will make a foolish people.
When somebody wants to take the world down, they destroy the value of knowledge in a woman. And when you deny education to the female, you are denying it to a nation. When you deny education to a man, you have denied education to an individual. When you deny it to a woman, you have denied it to an entire people. That's how valuable a woman is.
