Men staying at home during ladies taleem

Q: Ladies taleem is arranged at different houses each week for 45 minutes. When taleem is at a specific house, can the men of the house still be there, in another room, as long as they don't interact with the ladies doing taleem? So as long as the men stay in another room, and dont walk pass the ladies, or directly overhear them, will it be ok? Or must the men leave the house entirely before the ladies arrive?

A: They should be at a place where the voices of the women are not heard and they must take all the precautions not to look at the women and not to cross them.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
