AFLW presenter "gender equality storm". The decision to replace the host for an AFLW program with a man is working itself up into a "gender equality storm", as puts it. Last year's host Tiffany Cherry wrote for the Herald Sun last week, saying the decision by Channel Nine and Croc Media to replace her as host of Women's Footy with Clint Stanaway was a "significant step back". AFLW star Daisy Pearce has weighed in now, though, telling SEN Breakfast it's not necessary to have a woman presenting the show:

When I tune in and hear Rohan Connolly and Jack Heverin doing the preview on SEN for the women's round, I love that. It shows that the outside world and media consider this to be football, not women's football.
