Because they are adults and they have baby or work hardly so they haven’t enough time to study. Men, they are they cay earn more much money than women, they have more chance in their career. But women always less choice than men because when you graduated from college you went into a company they told you do you have boyfriends? What time would you like to marry? Because in our country when you are married but you have no job it is horrible thing, because you have no baby, maybe your reason, why you ant to join the company because when you have a baby you can have four month leave, so the position is empty. You must to lie, you have no boyfriend, it’s better. I think it’s no fair for women but it’s almost all of the company take care of this things.
