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 hard to change?' The woman replied "Land mines."

women should always be treated fairly and impartially but I think there should be different levels for both men and women boundaries that women shouldnt cross that should be reserved for men and likewise with men to get a balance.

To stop these kind of discrimination there is only 1 solution: "higher education". Just provide proper education to gals so that they dnt need to depend on their husband or son.

Well, I believe that women are still treated like this because its something that is handed down to us traditionally. In India, specially north India we are taught to be submissive. We see our mothers neglecting themselves to care for our fathers and that is exactly what we end up doing because it gets rooted in the subconscious.
Then it is also the fact that men are egotistic or are rather taught to be egotistic. They are supposed to be tough and shit though I don't see the point of a man trying to bottle up his emotions, its quite pointless. Nirvana's point of women being able to tempt the man is one of the reasons why they are so scared.
I actually know a guy who is barely 17 and almost broke up with his GF who is studying to become a doctor. Why? Because he doesn't want her to work after marriage. Beat that. And np, I dont live in a village.
