WOMEN WHO KNOW THEIR  PLACE
 
A point of view. 
 
Barbara Walters, of Television's 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.
 
From Ms . Walters' 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.

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

"BEHIND EVERY MAN,  THERE'S A SMART WOMAN"
