This debate topic is a rather popular one. The problem is that it does not view people as just humans. Yes men and women are different, but they all are human. And we have more in common than we think. Some people believe God has humiliated the woman and put her down. But that is not true. In the begining both of them: man and woman were created as one ADAM and as one human being. Only together they reflected the fullness of the nature of God. Woman is created in His image just like the man. Yes reflect different qualities of God, but who can judge Him and say that some things in Him are better than others? So, if you think woman is less valuable or a girl child is not as good as the boy child is - you are judging God and saying that part of Him is no good at all!
ANy life (be it male or female) is given by God. God plans, purpose and destiny for any person of any gender. so, the lives of boys and girls are equally valuable in His sight. As to the parents, it all depends on how you view a child, what you invest into it and what you give. Because you cannot hope to reap, unless you sow. What you give is what you receive. If you provide a girl with adequate education and make her able to earn her way through, she would be highly beneficial to her parents. If you keep her ignorant and make her marry at a young age, you should not hope to receive much such a life. READ ALSO: Importance of education for women in Nigeria – 5 top reasons
