'Miss Universe not objectification but a career path that women can follow'

Anne from Menlyn called in and spoke to Aubrey Masango, standing in for Eusebius Mckaiser.

She congratulated Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters who has been crowned Miss Universe 2017. She is only the second South African to win the title after Margaret Gardiner won the title in 1978.

These young ladies are working very hard.

Anne says she herself is a university professor, and admires these women and says they are really charming people who do a lot of good work. It has been a struggle to get taken seriously within the university environment at times, she adds with people believing women should not become university professors.

Well, I am a university professor - and I love wearing 5-inch heels if I feel like it. And I would like to look like those girls and I like being a woman, and I like being a mother, and I'm now a grandmother - and I love it!

Anne, caller

I love watching these pretty girls wearing beautiful clothes.

Anne, caller

She says she was never cut out for that so she went another route.

I don't think it is the objectification of women, I think it is a career path that a woman can follow.

Anne, caller

Nel-Peters is a 22-year-old business management graduate beat 91 other contestants to the title in Las Vegas on Sunday.
