Several callers have condemned the inclusion of men in the ANC Women's League (ANCWL) delegation at the party's national policy conference.
Listeners called in to lament the recruiting of men and ANCWL president Bathabile Dlamini's alleged remarks that women are "too emotional".
ANCWL member Pastor Nonqaba Mosunkutu says the league is regressing and adds that members were not consulted about the delegation selected to represent them.
