A journalist had done a story on gender roles in Kuwait several years before
the Gulf War, and she noted then that women customarily walked about 10 feet
behind their husbands. She returned to Kuwait recently and observed that
the men now walked several yards behind their wives. She approached one of
the women for an explanation. "This is marvelous," said the journalist.
"What enabled women here to achieve this reversal of roles?"
Replied the Kuwaiti woman: "Land mines"
