We are the Queens—We are Going to Change the World with Our Powers



By Tusbeeha Kamran Cheema

All women and girls have the right to education, no matter where they live:

We girls can do what we want to. We have the right to get a good education, just like men and boys. Men should not earn more money than us ladies. We should make the same amount of money. We have the right to get a higher education, especially in Pakistan. Girls don’t have to stay at home. Society is complicated for the female population in Pakistan. It should change. When someone prevents you from going to school, it obviously means that how important education is. Females must not be only the only ones who cook for men.


Little girls are going to school but many girls quit school before reaching the primary level. Their wish does not seem important to their families and they are not allowed to complete 10th grade, going to college, and the university. The basic right of education just become a dream for them. There are females who are fighting for the right to education in underdeveloped countries.

Females are not the men’s mothers who are cooking food for them every day. We females are the Queens. We are going to change the world with our powers, we are going to change the societies. I feel sorry for females from the remote areas in Pakistan who cannot go to even school, they can never read a story, they can never dream big, they can never dream about becoming doctors or lawyers.

And I’m going to tell you that they will get what they want one day. Both genders can make the world a better place if they work in harmony.

If human beings learn to coexist, then they can make a better society where nobody can force anything upon anyone. We girls are what we call rare weapons. And we are the only ones. Educating girls to save lives and build stronger families, communities, and economies. An educated female population increases a country’s productivity and fuels economic growth. Some countries lose one billion $ dollars every year by failing to educate girls to the same level as boys. It has changed in many years, but I’m telling you it’s going to change a lot quicker now. As a Pakistani girl, I wish for equal rights for girls in Pakistan. They must be allowed to dream and fly higher than Himalayan. They must not force to do anything they do not wish to.

Girls are more than you guys see with your eyes. Girls don’t have to be married at a young age before they have an education. They have the right to determine when they want to marry. Please try to change Pakistan a little bit. I see people are changing now, many men treat their wives respectfully and even allow them to get an education after marriage and they participate equally in the domestic duties. We just need more of them, in Pakistan.

I’m fortunately in 9th grade right now. According to UNESCO estimates, around the world, 132 million girls are out of school, including 34.3 million of primary school age, 30 million of lower-secondary school age, and 67.4 million of upper-secondary school age. For a better future for mankind, we need to break inequality at every sphere of our global society.  —-#GirlsNeedFullEdcation
