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."Introduce a kid to the outdoors, the American way depends on it

Heard that before. Old joke from WWII about North Affrica. In that one before the war the woman followed, after the war the woman walked in front.
