Patriarchy is the base of many traditional cultures in SA and something women have been fighting to be liberated from for many years. Women should not be slaves to men!

Taking to social media with a picture of a woman kneeling before a man, Tito asked if this whole obedient wife thing is still something we should be practising.

“Should we continue with this “cultural” approach? Does not look right!! I submit.”

Tito’s post sparks heaving debate on social media

While many African men and women still believe there is a place for each gender in the home… many do not. Times have changed and thus cultural norms need to evolve.

Gone are the day where men worked and women bear children. Women now work full-time jobs, however, they are still expected to fulfil their primitive duties on top of it?!

The debate took off like wildfire with many opposed opinions being shared in the comment section of Tito’s post.

@JollyHaute is not a fan of this:

“Eish, now this picture to me looks wrong. Yes, before you @ me, it’s “culture” but I believe my husband should be my best friend and not master. I love my boyfriend but I’m afraid he will NEVER experience this from me. He’d be shocked to see such and probably refuse the food.”

“I will gladly do it for a man that respects and loves me senselessly.
“I will do it because I want to cater to him and not because I have to. Sometimes it is ok to not try to fix what's not broken..."fixing" it because it looks bad on western standards.”
