Carers should receive a living wage and a separate budget should be created for girls' education; those are two of the suggestions made by writer and activist Selma James and Fawzia Koofi MP, Deputy Speaker in the Afghan National Parliament, in a session dedicated to big ideas at the BBC's 100 Women conference.
Ms Koofi says we need to "promote access to education " to ensure a "world with no illiteracy rate" while Ms James asked, "how can a mother be worthless?"
