WOMEN WHO KNOW THEIR PLACE


ஒரு ஆணை எங்கே வைக்க‌ வேண்டும் என்று
பெண்ணுக்குத் தெரியாதா?


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 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 or where you go):

BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE'S A SMART WOMAN (OR MAYBE MORE!)
