BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE’S A SMART WOMAN !
A SHORT STORY… DO NOT MISS…
Several years ago, before the Afghan conflict, Barbara Walters of Television’s 20/20 did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan. She noted that women customarily walked 5 paces behind their husbands. Recently she returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. From Miss Walter’s 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 they had so disliked. Miss 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 Miss Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation, said, “Land Mines.” Moral of the story is (no matter where you go): BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE’S A SMART WOMAN !
