WOMEN WHO KNOW THEIR PLACE...a point of view


Recommended Posts

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 five paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind

their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the

women are happy to maintain the old custom.

Ms. 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


The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without

hesitation said, 'Land Mines.'

Moral of the story is (no matter what language you speak or where you go):
