Conjugal Family: A Platform for Women Education and Aspiration for Political Leadership

Fasiku Adesola Mercy

Abstract


Women in any society occupy a very prominent position and they are saddled with some responsibilities which when properly managed will contribute immensely to nation- building. Knowledge, as it is often said, is power and can be acquired through education. The relevance of women in the society depends on the level of education they have attained. Women have been marginalized from taking leading positions in politics due to their low level of education. It has been brought to the fore that just as the natal family is quite important as it performs crucial roles in the childhood education, the conjugal family which eventually houses a girl child as a wife and mother should also perform important roles in the furtherance of women education where a girl child stopped her education abruptly either because of early marriage or other circumstances beyond her control. It is argued that conjugal family should not be the final destination that will bring a stop to girl child her educational advancement. Additionally, husbands have the responsibility to sharpen their wives for leadership roles politically and should be ready to release them accordingly without suspicion.
