What is the reason for this? 

In this annual education report published under the name Beyond Basics, girls were found to be ahead of boys in terms of continuing their studies after 12th. In the survey, two main reasons have been given behind this. The first reason is that after studying, it will help girls to become good housewives. So the second reason is that girls want to continue their studies so that they can stay away from household chores. That is why girls want to read as much as they can.
