Women Who Know Their Place

Recommended Posts

(I stole this from Niya Blake on another forum because I thought it was awesome!)


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.'
