I’m educating my parents!

“In almost every family, it’s the girls who do the dishes, wash the clothes and clean the yard, while the boys are allowed to study or play. Parents use girls as slaves and boys are like the rulers at home."

It’s the parents’ fault, and traditions that always put daughters last. To stop this we must educate the parents, so they understand that a girl has the same rights as a boy.

Most girls’ rights are violated here. I educate my parents and neighbours, so that they respect the rights of the child.”
