Women Who Know Their Place

And all this time I thought...


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

Moral of the story is (no matter what language you speak or where you go)

BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE’S A SMART WOMAN!……and, they’re always thinking!!

  1. So, what does that say about having women go first in our society? Send a woman through the door first to “check” for snipers?

  2. Hahahaha, that was great!!!!

  3. Very clever! I usually trail behind people anyway-being crippled is not such a bad thing after all!

  4. I loved it! I didn’t expect the ending. It shows you can be a muslim woman and be a little clever!
