Data for the study were collected from two hundred and fourteen (N=214) respondents belonging to two selected villages of district Bannu. A significant association was found among attitude about female education and by getting education females would become good housewives, good mothers, would be able to get better life partners, would bring up their children in a better way and could help their children in educational and social problems. Furthermore they would have job opportunities, would be socio- economically empowered, would make sensible decisions in important matters and they would be less likely to marry early.
