2. IMPROVES WAGES AND JOBS

Decades of research shows that better-educated women earn more, have better jobs, and invest their
earnings into their famlies. Considering many women across the globe work in informal or unpaid work, a steady job and higher wages translates tinto better outcomes for families. Every additional year of school a woman attends increases her wages by an average of 12 percent. Also, if she has above-average math skills she can earn 18 percent more.*
