Women and their children are often trapped in horrible relationships because without an education they don't have the capacity to earn an income to be on their own. With an education and therefore an ability to earn an income women will have the capacity to have independence. 

Hi Gita,
I think you're right that education is key, but I think economic empowerment needs to come from learning job skills. Once women have the capacity to earn their own income, they have the ability to stand on their own and not be dependent on their husbands to raise a family.
