The pie charts illustrate the proportion of education level of women in some land at 1945 and 1995.

Overall, as can be seen from the first figure that the majority of highest education levels for women were both of no schooling and third grade, and the lowest was first degree. However, for the next 50 years, the first degree turned to be the highest education level for women.

In 1945, 35 percent of women in some land were only graduated from third grade and had no schooling. It followed by 15 percent 6 years educated women, 5 percent 9 years educated women, 4 percent 12 years educated women, and only 1 percent women that educated from the first degree. Additionally, there were no women that graduated from postgraduate at that period.

In 1995, the First degree turned to be the highest level for women, at 50 percent. It is followed by postgraduate and year 12 education, with both of them at 20 percent. The third highest was 10 percent women graduated from year 9 education. However, at that period, there were no women that were educated from year 6, third grade, or no schooling.
