WOMEN WHO KNOW THEIR PLACE
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 5 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
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'.
The Moral of the Story:
No matter what language you may speak or wherever you may go,
BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE'S A SMART WOMAN
This special post was for my husband who I am eternally grateful to for his support and love. And for giving me space to grow and have a little adventure without him. I miss you my love.
