Education of women in Islamic countries

Day 19


Women’s education

Muslim extremism bans the education of girls and women holding positions in society. In Egypt 40% of women are illiterate and the position is worse in Morocco, Pakistan, Yemen and Afghanistan. This situation is changing or has changed in Iraq, UAE, Malaysia, Turkey and Indonesia.


  • Pray for schooling for girls and their protection in nations where they can be harassed.
  • Pray for advocates of women’s education.
  • Pray for more girls and women to hear of and read of Christ.
