Her comments come after a photo in which she appeared to be kneeling before her husband sparked debate after being shared on social media.

Some bloggers immediately pounced on the photo, with some people even suggesting that her actions could mean she has now abandoned her feminist roots after getting married.

However, Gifty Anti has rejected such claims, saying she is still very much committed to the feminist cause.

Explaining what really led to her 'kneeling' before her husband, the weekly host of the Standpoint Show said that particularly photo was taken way back in January during her birthday.

In an Instagram post she said her husband gave her a stool as a present, which she sat on before hugging him.

This, she said, has been misinterpreted by some bloggers, while also insisting that kneeling before her husband does not make her less of a feminist.

According to her, the spring of young ladies joining the feminist movement "is scaring some people".

She continued: "It was my birthday, 23rd January, 2017, and my husband gave me a stool. I was so excited and honored. He put me on the stool and I hugged him. 

"But well according to some bloggers, I was kneeling before my husband and so some feminists are 'heartbroken'. Lord have mercy.

"And by the way what if I was kneeling before my husband? (who is a chief too). Does it make me less of a feminist? Which feminist code does loving your husband break? My Name is Oheneyere Gifty Anti and yes I am a FEMINIST, married with many children."
