Once a disciple asked Swami Bibekananda," what sort of education, do you think, is suited to our women? "Swamiji replied: 'Religion, Arts, Science, housekeeping, Cooking, Sewing, Hygiene—the simple essential points in these subjects ought to be taught to our women……absolutely nothing can be done to improve the state of things, unless there is spread of education first among the women……."
This beautiful and profound statement encapsulates the value of education among women. There is no alternative to education, with some exception of people attaining greatness without formal education. .
