Summary: Millions of adults worldwide, especially women, are unable to read, write, or work the simplest of arithmetic problems. And yet research confirms that what common sense suggests: educating girls and women is crucial to improving the health and welfare of families in developing countries and to ending poverty and misery. This essay focuses on one country's campaign against female illiteracy, describing how the government, international aid agencies, private groups, and ordinary citizens in Indonesia are helping women to master basic literacy skills- and better lives.
