WOMEN WHO STILL SMARTLY KNOW THEIR PLACE

Ms. Walters told us 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
to, 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 or where you
go): BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE'S A SMART WOMAN
