Education for women is enormously valuable. Educated and empowered girls and women are more protected them from poverty, disease, exploitation, and unemployment. Economic conditions, family life, and personal and family health are all improved when women are more educated.

Sports participation also has a positive impact on girls and women. Girls who are involved in sports do better academically, socially, and emotionally. These girls are more likely to have higher grades in school, to have stronger relationships, and to have a more positive body image. In my career as a Physical and Health Education teacher and sports coach, I have wanted to empower girls to be active in sports and to value their own image as athletes and as valuable people.
