Governing in Sri Lanka is the most difficult of any country, yet it is a country with some of the most promising female graduates.
As a result, the country’s female graduates are being recruited from the most diverse of schools, including private universities, state colleges, and private universities in some of India’s most densely populated regions.
But in a country where female students make up less than one-fifth of the population, female education is not a given, especially in a society that prides itself on its gender equality.
Sri Lankan universities are not the only places in the world where women are making strides.
Female students in Singapore, Malaysia, and other Asian countries have taken to social media to share their success stories.
A recent survey by the Asian Development Bank found that Singapore has one of the highest numbers of female students in the country.
The women’s university system is one of many places where the idea of equality is being reflected in the education system, said Jyoti K.S. Ramesh, associate director at the Center for Global Women in Higher Education, a think tank that tracks gender inequality in education.
Ramesh believes that Singapore, India, and South Korea have some of Africa’s best female universities.
“We see this trend that is being pushed by the governments in the region,” she said.
The idea of equal educational opportunities is something that has been pushed for a long time, and in a number of places, it is actually being achieved.
“In the past, girls were not educated in the public schools, they were in private schools, and there were no women in the higher education system,” Ramesa said.
“And that is why, for example, there is no gender quota in the teaching profession.
And that is what is pushing the idea that this is something we should strive for, but we need to take into account the realities of the society.”
Sri Lanka, which has more than 90 percent women in its civil service and the government, has the third-highest ratio of female employees in the Asia-Pacific region, behind Singapore and Singapore.
In addition to having a women-only system, Sri Lanka also has an emphasis on the educational, physical, and cultural skills that girls need to succeed in life.
While Singapore and Malaysia have more than 60 percent women at the top levels of government, and Singapore has a female governor general, it has a lower ratio of women than Sri Lankans, according to a recent report by the Centre for Strategic and International Studies.
“It’s also been noted that there is a gap in education and training between men and women,” Rameas said.
“There is a lack of education for the girls and the boys, so the gender balance is skewed,” Romesh said.
For the most part, women have not been invited to join the ranks of higher-ranking officers, said Ramess.
She is hoping that a national initiative to recruit more women to the civil service will help.
“The Government of Sri Lanka has been a leader in promoting women in politics,” Rami N. Ramakrishnan, a retired diplomat who was a member of the Sri Lankan government, told ABC News.
“The prime minister’s office has also done well in terms of the promotion of women and the promotion and training of women in various fields.”
But it is not just the education of female officers that is important.
Ramkrishnan added that the government’s focus on women-specific projects and women-friendly business models is also a positive step forward.
The government of Sri Lankans is trying to push its image as a leader among the developing world and as a modern democracy.
And while the country is still struggling to establish itself as a true leader, the recent history of the country shows that women can succeed, and they can do so without having to be part of the elite.
Ramsrishnan has a different take on the issue.
“I believe the government has the power to make a difference,” she told ABC.
“You can say that we are not perfect, but I think that we can make progress.”
