Women Who Know Their Place. (cute)

Posted May 9, 2011
Update May 24) I just heard that this story is not true. According to Snopes it is based on an old joke.  I am leaving it on here because it is still a cute story and gives us something to smile about. ;-)

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)

Thanks for visiting, have a great day,
