Women Who Know Their Place

 

WOMEN
WHO KNOW THEIR PLACE

Smart Women

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
now seem to, 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 an 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.’
