So D indeed is not suggesting that women are in touch with their emotions, just that emotions allegedly render women unreliable.
Damasio, the neuroscientist, has described in his books the research showing that not being in touch with one's emotions makes one irrational, in fact, pretty much useless in most society-type interactions, which would include politics.
