When she was just a girl, she expected the world, but it flew away from her reach, so she ran away in her sleep

I want to share this short powerful video with you, it's called "It only takes a girl":

It made me so grateful for the gift of education. I've always appreciated that my Dad placed such an importance on education and doing well at school, particularly because his sisters (my aunties) in Pakistan weren't given the opportunity to go to school whilst he could.

The video reminded me of this quote:

"Women are one half of society which gives birth to the other half so it is as if they are the entire society." Ibn Al-Qayyim
