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.
Behind Every Man thanks to Liz Ward, Squamish, B.C.

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!
