The table above shows the relationship between education and voting in election in order to find out if women with western education would likely participate in politics than those with non-western education. The data shows that 100 percent of those women with no formal education at all believe that it is a responsibility for women to vote in election. 78.78 percent out of the 50 respondents with western education have the same opinion, while 21.22 percent of the respondents believe woman should not vote in election. And among those women with Islamic education 66.67 percent believe women should vote in election, while 33.33 percent believe women should not vote in election at all.
 
According to one of them, she stated that ‘I am of the opinion that politics is more suited to the men and not for women as it is no use to women as the men benefit more from it’. Therefore looking at the above table it will be clearly seem that education plays a vital and critical determining role in politics, consequently it has shown that those women with western education participate more than those with no form of western education at allin the society also their opinions about politics and their political orientation greatly differs.
