Trends of Gender Inequality in Education in Haryana
Education is considered as a significant instrument of women empowerment because it enables them to face the challenges, to confront their traditional role and change their lives. Education is the only tool through which women can change their positions in society. History speaks that women education has played a very important role in the overall development of the country since ancient times. A number of social activists have contributed significantly for the development of women education and their upliftment. As a result, India has reached at a respectable place as regards to literacy rates. The state of Haryana has also made rapid strids in the field of education after its formation. Yet it lags far behind as far as interstate literacy levels are concerned. Gender gaps in the levels of literacy rates and Gross Enrolment Ratio are still at higher levels. Even though, Haryana is among the smaller states in terms of population and area, inter-district variations in literacy rates are still very high.
