She once said, “My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant to be your own person, be independent.” Her mother instilled the importance of education and feminism into her brain. Ginsburg also said, “The law was something most unusual for those times because for most girls growing up in the ‘40s, the most important degree was not your B.A. but your M.R.S.” Her mother made sure that despite what society thought, if Ruth was independent and pushed herself, she could truly become anything she wanted. Sadly, her mother passed away a day before Ginsburg graduated from James Madison High School and she was never able to see all of the life changing events that her
Malala Yousafzai Pakistani teenager who was shot in the head by Taliban when she was 14 years old because she was brave to speak out about education and women right in her country.

A teenage mother will need a high school degree to get a job to care for her child. Most teens that end up pregnant will end up dropping out of school making it hard for them to get a job to take care of their children. Teens should not have sex knowing they have a high chance of pregnancy and they know that they're not in the right state to
For instance, the narrator mentions at the beginning of the novel that, tellingly, her mother not only is concerned about and adamant on her having “a secondary education”, as “What was enough for her is not enough for her daughter” (Duras 5), but also, more importantly that upon high school, her daughter obtains “a good degree in mathematics” (Duras 5). Indeed, the narrator significantly reveals that this expectation on the part of her mother that was part of her overall planning of “her children’s future”, “had been dinned into me [her] ever since I [she] started school” (Duras 5), with her mother being categorically “against” her desire to “write” “novels” in her life, referring to such an occupation as “nonsense”, and “A childish ideal” (Duras 27). The science of mathematics being arguably culturally mostly associated with males, the mother, as consequence of her internalization of societal misogyny, has, I would argue, a subconscious wish toward a certain masculinization, which she also transfers onto her daughter. Overall, this wish on the part of the mother for her daughter can be interpreted as highly suggestive of the assumption that she indeed regards her daughter as an extension of herself, and that she is thus projecting onto her part of her own idealistic and unfulfilled wishes for her own self. In addition, the mother’s comparatively more profusely expressed fondness for the narrator’s brothers (Duras 7) further reinforces this assumption of the mother’s “idealization of the
Alicia is in a situation where her mother has died, leaving her alone to cope with poverty, and the only way out is through education. The text says, “young and smart for the first time at the University. Two trains and a bus because she doesn't want to spend her whole life in a factory or behind a rolling pin” (Cisneros 31). Ever since Alicia's mother has passed, Alicia has been learning to cope with poverty and realized that the only way out of poverty is through education. Alicia values education so much that it causes her to take two trains and a bus a day, only to get to

They face these obstacles by the support of their family and friends like for example I personally saw in my school there was a girl in my class who got blind in class four and wasted two years of her life hoping she would get better which was great obstacles faced by her and her family, even though her eyes were not cured she had this passion for studying so she again enrolled in my school and started to study again and there were lot obstacles faced by her and her family but still she came through as for she was talented and she never lost her faith and studied hardly and thus eliminating her one of her many obstacles. Well in my view also these people are special and we should not look at them with sympathy but treat them as a normal being and also help them in facing their obstacles. We should not socially exclude the disabled people. If Beethoven had given up earlier would we have been able to hear his ninth symphony, he also didn’t hear his ninth symphony as he was deaf but still he gave this world a beautiful piece of music, he
The amphitheater was full of people when Stephanie walked in to take her final exam before graduation. She hoped that some of the experiments she had done during her three years of studying would made it easier to graduate and not worry about grades. However every one of her professors told her the same exact thing, ’’Despite your achievements you still need good grades to graduate top of your class. We value your efforts to create new elements or make a difference in this world but you need to read your textbooks and pass your classes to have academic success. She had passed all her other classes leaving quantum physics as the last course because she found it less interesting than all the others.
This shows strength because she was standing up for what she thought was right. Even though she knew that the Taliban might come for her. In fact in the in Diane Sawyer 's interview with Malala she states how the Taliban burned down all the girl schools and threw acid on the students and yet Malala kept learning every thought they had no school to go to. This shows how much strength she truly had especially young 11-year-old Malala. She cared about her education so much in fact that she was not scared off by the Taliban when they burnt down the schools or threw acid at the kids.
