Among the natural resources which
can be called upon in national plan for development, possibly the most
important is human labour; without productive labour force, including effective
leadership and intelligent middle management, no amount of foreign assistance
of natural wealth can ensure successful development and modernization. One
essential factor is usually overlooked or ignored. The forgotten factor is the
role of women. Development will be handicapped as long as women remain
second-class citizens, uneducated, without any voice in family or community
decisions, without legal or economic status, married when they are still practically
children, and henceforth producing one baby after another, often only to see
half of them die before they are of school age. We can enhance development by
improving ‘woman power’ by giving women opportunity to develop themselves.
