Women's Education Under Attack

By May 1, 2014

Follow me on:

This has been a tough week in women's issues, especially in the world of women's education. First, the US Supreme Court upholds damaging legislation regarding affirmative action. "Women and Affirmative Action" discusses how the controversial social program is an integral part of women's advancement in the workplace and in schools.

Over 200 schoolgirls were abducted from their school in northern Nigeria by a terrorist organization that targets schools and is adamantly opposed to educating girls and women. Read this piece to learn more about the kidnapping, the national response, and the international outcry against this violence.
