They are taught that being smart, well-mannered and good at their job are essential to success.
They learn to be self-aware and aware of the way others are treating them, as well as to make their own choices.
They’re taught that they have a right to choose who they marry, to have their own child, to be free from discrimination.
They get to grow up, not as slaves or indentured servants.
They can learn to love their bodies, to not be ashamed of their bodies.
They have the opportunity to love themselves, to love each other, to embrace their true selves, to appreciate and love each others gifts, talents, talents and gifts.
They also get to be the best version of themselves.
