A reporter who did a story on gender roles in
several years before the Afghan conflict noted then that women
customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.
She recently returned to
walk behind their husbands.
She approached one of the Afghan women and asked:
" Why do you now seem happy with the old custom that you once
tried so desperately to change ? "
The woman looked her in the eyes and without hesitation, said:
" Landmines ! "
"The Husband will get it first"
Moral of the story : Behind every man is a damn smart woman !
