- Dr Joyce Aryee says she finds nothing wrong in a woman cooking for her husband
- The renowned politician says taking roles in marriage as a woman does not amount to slavery
- Some feminists in Ghana say cooking for a man signifies slavery
The executive director of Salt and Light Ministries, Dr Joyce Aryee, has broken her silence on the heated debate about whether it is right for a woman to cook for her husband.
The astute preacher and highly acknowledged politician has thrown out claims by some feminists in Ghana who say cooking for your husband is a sign of slavery.
These feminists, mostly from the group - "Pepper them ministries" - are arguing that the concept of marriage in Ghana always puts women on the role of slavery.
A typical example being the belief that women are meant for the kitchen and also are they caretakers of the house.
Dr Joyce Aryee says she finds no wrong in taking roles in marriage.
“I don’t think cooking for your husband can be seen as slavery, No I don’t think so…As a man, you can help your wife in the kitchen or just be around to chat with her. If your wife comes back from work and she is tired, and she must hurriedly prepare food and all that, at least the man must go into the kitchen and stand by her and help her out,” Dr Aryee argued on Starr FM.
