'Sexy sea dog' Jeremy Corbyn has smashed the Labour sisterhood — It's a souped-up, lefty version of what's already on offer from the other candidates. His opponents Yvette Cooper and Andy Burnham have made noises about better childcare, and less swingeing welfare cuts. Corbyn proposes "a system of universal free childcare" and "an urgent end to the cuts to public services and welfare".

Labour's robotic women don't stand a chance against Jeremy Corbyn — Yvette 'robotic' Cooper But when challenged, instead of ripping up the script and showing some feeling and emotion, she parroted a pre-rehearsed soundbite about a "childcare revolution" and a "digital revolution". I know it was pre-rehearsed, because she rehearsed it on last night's Channel 4 News.

The women in #Labourleadership need to stop sounding like the Tin Man & show some passion. My @TeleWonderWomen blog

David Cameron - a compassionate Tory feminist after all? — So Mr Cameron's ambition to close the pay gap within a generation, and "create the pressure we need for change" is welcome, if overdue. But changing his mind won't do the prime minister any harm at all. Quite the reverse.

FactCheck: Are young people being priced out of living where they grow up? — The claim "In many parts of our country it has become normal for young people to leave, though not out of choice. This might be to find work, but more and more, it is to find a home that they can afford."

You wouldn't defend racism. So stop backing sexist scientist Tim Hunt — Certainly, the spectacle of a Twitter mob baying for blood was unedifying. And if that played any part in a rush to judgement by UCL, it's regrettable. But even so, you won't be surprised to hear that I for one will be letting this particular bandwagon roll on by.

Spot on by @cathynewman: Tim Hunt confirmed and defended his sexism, so the nitpicking is irrelevant. He had to go.…

The Queen vs The Queen of Scots: Is Nicola Sturgeon's crown slipping? — But that has cut little ice with Buckingham Palace, which is briefing every Tom Dick and Harry that they will not let the matter rest. On the face of it, so what? The SNP has never had much truck with the monarchy.

Harriet Harman: the best leader Labour's never had — Harman is none of those things. In fact for a woman who's never been considered leadership material, she's got rather a lot going for her. First of all: firm beliefs. As Britain's longest-serving female MP, she's been arguing for equality before many of her male colleagues were out of short trousers.

Rachel Dolezal parents: 'She is not at peace' — Cathy Newman asked Ruthanne and Larry about a number of things Ms Dolezal, who resigned as president of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) after being "outed" as white.

Nicola Sturgeon US tour: 'Feminist first minister' is winning America — Sturgeon quipped that she had "ordered an inquiry" into why the SNP won only 56 of Scotland's 59 parliamentary seats. "You think you're Saddam Hussein? You get 99 per cent?" Stewart replied, in reference to the Ba'ath leader's fondness for staged elections where he would win by overwhelming margins.

Chrissy Chambers: I am a victim of revenge porn — The 24-year-old is launching a legal challenge in the UK for damages against her ex-boyfriend - in what could become a landmark revenge-porn case. She claims her former partner - who is British - filmed her while drunk and then posted the footage online six years ago.
