“Daughters should be supported and educated with as much care and attention as the sons.” As sons should be married after observing Brahmacharya up to the thirtieth year, so daughters also must observe Brahmacharya and be educated by their parents. (Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, Vol. 5, Pg. 26)

‘પુત્રના જેટલી જ કાળજી અને ધ્યાનપૂર્વક પુત્રીઓનું પાલનપોષણ કરવું તથા તેમને ભણાવવી.’ જેવી રીતે ત્રીસ વર્ષ સુધી બ્રહ્મચર્યનું પાલન કર્યા બાદ પુત્રોને પરણાવવા જોઈએ તેવી રીતે પુત્રીઓએ પણ બ્રહ્મચર્યનું પાલન કરવું જોઈએ અને માબાપોએ તેમને શિક્ષણ આપવું જોઈએ.

‘पुत्रियों का भी इसी तरह अत्यंत यत्न के साथ पालन और शिक्षण होना चाहिए’ – कन्याप्येवं पालनीया शिक्षणीयातियत्नतः । जैसे ३० वर्ष तक ब्रह्मचर्य-पालन-पूर्वक पुत्रों की शिक्षा होनी चाहिए, इसी तरह पुत्रियों की भी शिक्षा होनी चाहिए ।

‘কন্যাপ্যেবং পালনীয়া শিক্ষনীয়াতিযত্নতঃ ছেলেদের যেমন 30 বৎসর পর্যন্ত ব্রহ্মচর্য করে বিদ্যাশিক্ষা হবে, তেমনি মেযেদেরও করিতে হইবে। … তোমাদের মেয়েদের উন্নতি করিতে পারো? তবে আশা আছে। নতুবা পশুজন্ম ঘুচিবে না।
