Noted Ghanaian media personality and host of GHOne’s State of Affairs program, Nana Aba Anamoah has debunked the prevailing notion that ‘women are only complete if they get married’.
According to Nana Aba, many Ghanaian women are facing immense societal pressures to get hitched, which she does not understand, as settling down with a man and household responsibilities does not equate a fulfilled woman.
“That is so archaic and stupid. I wonder why you’re only ticked complete when you’re married. So the hard work, waking up at dawn doing research, toiling, sweating, you mean that doesn’t count…? That is why a lot of people are married and the divorce rate is so high, and until we get men not to speak the same way like some men speak and women who feel they are married so everyone woman should be married. Then it means I am on TV and every lady should be. There is pressure on them to settle down…” she said during her interview on the KSM show.
