    Why is education important for women?

    It's important for everyone. To place emphasis on 'women' is sexist toward men.

    However, I believe education about pregnancy (and other things that primarily affect women) is important because your life is no longer your own.

    Everything is situational. Even education.

    In the past, women were denied education and they suffered under the tyranny of men. So, education could liberate women. Women are now under the tyranny of education!

    ...to become educated. There's no different reason for anyone to be educated, other than to be educated. Of course, the applicability of specialized education might vary for men and women - given, you know, whatever... I gather the 'corpus callosum' in a woman's brain is typically larger than a male's, (ergo, providing greater communication and coherence between brain-hemispheres), so a good argument might be made that study mainly involving the integration of straightforward, rational logic and intuitive reasoning and insight might provide women a nicely specialized, cross-sectional understanding that can be applied in creatively pragmatic ways...

    Of course, genetic predisposition in matters of neuro-function doesn't necessarily provide the last word - there are many interesting ways for men AND women to enhance cross-hemispherical interactivity, enabling ever-greater brain-function, insight and multi-perspective understanding. This can also have great impact on nerve-function throughout the entire body, among MANY other interesting and beneficial brain/mind capabilities...

    Short and sweet everyone needs to have an education. But the idea behind putting someones sex into the equation ruins the mentality, the same applies to race religion etc. Your singaling out a specific group and because studies have shown that when people are answering something like this they would in a way that makes them seem good, theyll answer and favor someone that fits that. The principle applies to an immensle level with the obama presidency in the jubilant cries that "WE NOW HAVE A BLACK PRESIDENT". basically beyond all the rambeling its just wrong and sexist to bring something like that into the equation. Im a die hard atheist and it pisses me off when someone tries to use a minority status, even one that i belong to, to try and play some game like this. Its just wrong and the question shouldnt even exist because education is important for EVERYONE.

    Everyone benefits from education and learning.  The more we learn about all manner of subjects, the more the world is open to us and makes more sense.  The more education we have the better equipped we are to make decisions.  It is a win-win situation for everyone. Even if one cannot afford a formal education, read, read, read everything on all kinds of subjects.  The more you know, the more you will want to know.
