Behind Every Man

Follow the leader in Kabul, or else



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 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 eye, and
without hesitation said, “Land mines.”

Moral of the story: Behind every man, there’s a smart woman!
