Subject: BARBARA WALTERS STORY
MAINTAINING A DISTANCE OF 5 PACES BEHIND
Barbara Walters of 20/20 did a story on gender roles in Kabul,
Afghanistan,several years before the Afghan conflict. She noted
that women customarily walked 5 paces behind their husbands.
She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still
walk behind their husbands. From Ms. 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.
Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, "Why
do you now seem happy with the old custom that you once tried so
desperately to change?"
The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes and without
hesitation said, "Land mines."
MORAL OF THE STORY:
BEHIND EVERY MAN IS A SMART WOMAN!!
