Women Who Know Their Place

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 5 paces behind their
husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk
behind their husbands. From Ms. 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.

Ms. 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 Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without
hesitation, said, "Land Mines."

MORAL OF THE STORY:
BEHIND EVERY MAN IS A SMART WOMAN.



:-D :-D :-D

I used to visit Kabul when the Russians were occupying it, and we had a standard instruction. "Follow 5 metres behind the local representative and in his footsteps otherwise you might learn something." In addition if someone had a grievance with him you were not likely to be knocked off at the same time. We lost two reps in one particular year and our local office was demolished.

Ariana was the only airline at that time that was not based in its own country. If it parked its sole aircraft more than 24 hours in Kabul it invalidated its insurance.
