Vince Cable on coalitions past and future - video — Please wait while this video loads. If it doesn't load after a few seconds you may need to have Adobe Flash installed. Lib Dem Business Secretary Vince Cable discusses his party's election prospects, the coalition with the Conservatives, and the possibility of a future coalition government, with Cathy Newman.

Rape law: One woman's quest to overturn decades of injustice — The law is more than a decade old, and it's very clear. Section 74 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 spells out that someone has only consented to sex if she or he "agrees by choice and has the freedom and capacity to make that choice".

Harman's nails it: Ukip is sexist. Shame other parties are too — Then there's Ukip leader Nigel Farage's infamous suggestion that a woman in the City is "worth far less" to her employer after returning from maternity leave. I challenged him on that on Channel 4 News last year - at first he implied I'd misquoted him (I hadn't), he then went on to defend his comments.

Don't blame actresses for lying about their age — While male stalwarts of the TV studios are easily the wrong side of 60 and 70, and proud of it, pundits and public alike sometimes assume that as a woman you must, for the sake of your career, be coy about your age - or risk being eased out of the hot seat once the first crow's feet start showing up in HD.

Charlie Hebdo: Will Marine Le Pen destroy fragile France? — "When we fought Islamic fundamentalism, when we denounced it, they dismissed us as Muslim haters. It is those people who dismissed us as Muslim haters who have created the confusion - not us," she told Channel 4 News.

Secrets of political wives: How to survive general election hell — Philip May wore a bespoke Ozwald Boateng suit teamed with a Paul Smith tie (last year's A/W collection, mind). No it doesn't sound very likely does it? In fact, I made it up. For a start, I suspect the man who's married to the Home Secretary has a rather more conservative taste in couture.

Osborne: 'Economic competence versus chaos' - video — Please wait while this video loads. If it doesn't load after a few seconds you may need to have Adobe Flash installed. Chancellor George Osborne tells Channel 4 News voters have a choice between the government's economic competence and the chaos of the alternatives of higher borrowing and higher taxation.

British political women to watch in 2015 — She has been bold enough to take on the police - and win. In election year and beyond, can she now win the bigger battle to succeed David Cameron? 2) Penny Mordaunt Theresa May is far too buttoned-up to talk smut from the Dispatch box.

Grammar school row: Is Nicky Morgan trying too hard to distance herself from Gove? — "There's nothing wrong with grammar schools, and there's a lot to celebrate in the existing grammar schools that we have, but it's also the case that comprehensive schools can do a fantastic job, if they have the high aspirations that I've seen."

Art Exhibit in Washington Explores the Madonna as Woman, Mother, and Idea — Cathy Newman Published December 4, 2014 She's the most recognizable woman in the world. Her image spans a wide range of centuries and styles, from reverential portraits by old masters like Michelangelo to cheap plaster statues to the controversial collage by Chris Ofili of a black Madonna studded with elephant dung that caused an uproar when exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum in 1999.
