“We know that literate, educated women are more engaged members of society; their impact is far reaching from their homes, through their communities, and in their countries. When mothers learn to read, they teach their children and they are more likely to be advocates for their children’s education. Mothers who know how to read know how to follow instructions on a medicine bottle, and they are more likely to know the risks associated with AIDs and malaria.” In short, she said, “When you educate women, you improve nearly every aspect of society.”  - Laura Bush
