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.

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.

David Cameron's sums don't add up. And it's rape victims who will suffer — Will Mrs May be able to protect rape survivors with more cuts on the horizon? Her demand for more government resources will be hard for both Mrs May - who's made much of her fight for justice for women - and David Cameron to ignore.

Britain's 'most dangerous women' just scotched David Cameron's plan — The government's briefing there will be no rush to replace the act with a British Bill of Rights - intended to break the "formal link" with the European Court of Human Rights - handing a victory of sorts to both Sturgeon, who had been loudly warning the government that her 56 MPs would vote against the proposals ; and Chakrabarti, who had been mobilising troops across the Commons for the battle ahead.

Labour leadership: Yvette Cooper can't be first woman leader like this — So, as the leadership contest grinds into gear, will any of Labour's women cut the mustard this time? Yvette Cooper should have the best claim on the top job. Indeed, she spke out yesterday, calling for the party to pick a woman leader .
