The world's illiteracy rate is about 26% percent and women constitute two-thirds of all non-literates. This is because in some regions of the world, people do not treasure girl child education. The highest illiteracy rates are in the less developed countries of Africa, Asia and South America.
Uneducated? That has different meanings for some. I know geniuses with no common sense what so ever. I know many "educated" book smart people with no wisdom or understanding of what's going on around them. Educated does not mean wise. Wisdom does not come from books. I've even heard biblical scholars who have no real understanding of what they're talking about. So it's hard to answer that. I'm extremely educated in life. But I would not be considered amongst the educated because I did not attend college.
