- Gifty Anti was seen in a photo "kneeling" before her husband, Nana Ansah Kwao
- The picture has since drawn mixed feelings from feminists - who feel betrayed, and other - who feel the broadcaster's stand on feminism was not firm
- But the broadcaster has released the full image which showed that she was not kneeling before her husband
Ghanaian veteran broadcaster, Gifty Anti, has been a champion of women's rights in Ghana and thus any action of hers that seems to cement practices "demeaning" women get a lot of flak and diatribe from feminists in Ghana.
When the TV show host got married, a section of feminists were said to have made snide comments after having felt betrayed by her.
This reaction was even more pronounced after Gifty Anti posted a "tribute" to her husband, Nana Ansah Kwao, in which she stated that he had "honored her as a woman".
However, a new photo of the couple seems to have drawn more ire from feminists across the country.
On Thursday, September 29th, a photo which showed Gifty Anti kneeling before her royal husband, threatened to divide popular opinion amongst feminist in Ghana.
The broadcaster, who has hitherto been seen as one of the most outspoken gender activists in Ghana, was seen in the image hugging the legs of her husband with a wide smile on her face as she knelt before him.
A school of thought social media believed that her posture signified a master-servant relationship in their marriage, one of the basic things feminists have been fighting against.
But others believed that she was just showing her love to her husband by being submissive.
However, another school of thought questioned whether Gifty Anti's stand for feminism had gotten diminished by her marriage to Nana Ansah Kwao.
But this was debunked by Gifty Anti when she released the full image which showed that she was not kneeling in front of her husband.
The full image, shared on Instagram by the broadcaster, showed her sitting on stool as she hugged the leg of her husband.
She maintained that she was still a feminist despite the fact that she was married now.
