    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."

    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.
    Yadda Yadda, Punchline (Land Mines!)
