Pacific 2010: Women's Education and Economic Development in Melanesia
National Centre for Development Studies, Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies, Australian National University, 1994 - Social Science - 42 pages
Internationally, women's education has emerged as a significant aspect of economic growth and development. Research in many developing countries shows the value of women's education: educating women improves health, expectation of life, and GNP. Furthermore, it is becoming apparent that the gender gap-the difference between the education levels of men and women-is the most important factor. The larger the gap, the lower the GNP. The conclusion is clear. Educating women is the most important investment that can be made.
