A point of view…

Barbara Walters of Television’s 20/20 did a story on gender roles in Kabul , Afghanistan several years before the Afghan conflict. She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. From Miss Walters’ vantage point, despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to walk even further back behind their husbands, and are happy to maintain the old custom.
 
Miss Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, ‘Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?’

The woman looked Miss Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, ‘Land Mines.’

Moral of the story is (No matter where you go): Behind every man, there’s a smart woman!
