CHICAGO - Hip replacements are slightly more likely to fail in women than in men, according to one of the largest studies of its kind in U.S. patients. The risk of the implants failing is low, but women were 29 percent more likely than men to need a repeat surgery within the first three years. The message for women considering hip replacement surgery remains unclear. It's not known which models of hip implants perform best in women, even though women make up the majority of the more than 400,000 Americans who have full or partial hip replacements each year to ease the pain and loss of mobility caused by arthritis or injuries.

MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, Ohio - Republican nominee Mitt Romney's awkward comment during the second presidential debate that he had received "binders full of women" as Massachusetts governor when he requested more female job candidates went fully viral Wednesday, drawing snickers from voters but also fueling a broader fight between the two campaigns over the key support of women. Romney's remark was just a sliver of the discussion Tuesday night about issues relevant to women, as the candidates tussled over subjects such as contraception and unequal pay. The battle escalated Wednesday, as President Obama worked to reclaim his advantage among women - and as the Romney campaign returned to its core argument that the Republican is better suited to manage women's top concern, the economy.

It seemed at times like a traditional court hearing. The judge peered down from the bench at the defendant as the parole officer gave her latest report. But then some comments made the assistant district attorney look up from her papers. "I want you to realize that you don't have to be in a relationship with a man to be valuable," Assistant D.A. Shea Rhodes told the defendant. This was no ordinary proceeding. This was Project Dawn Court, Philadelphia's treatment option for prostitution where sex workers opt to seek healing and an escape from the cycle of prostitution.

WASHINGTON - Declaring "the days of Rambo are over," a top general said Tuesday that cultural, social and behavioral concerns may be bigger hurdles than tough physical fitness requirements for women looking to join the military's special operations units. Maj. Gen. Bennet Sacolick, director of force management for U.S. Special Operations Command, said that having seen women working alongside commando teams in Afghanistan, he is less concerned about their physical strength than the social issues that could arise.

THE QUESTIONABLE death of Sandra Bland in a Texas jail cell - allegedly a suicide - has forced me to revisit the ugly realities I explained to my children in the aftermath of the Michael Brown case. They are realities rooted in the complex relationships between race and class, between right and wrong, between law and justice. Because the frightening truth is that laws are applied unevenly, and justice is too often in the eye of the beholder. Unfortunately, Sandra Bland's death has broadened the problem.

After Suzi Spotleson tapped in a par putt at the 18th, Katie Edelblut dropped her head and went to give Spotleson a congratulatory handshake. But no congratulations were in order. Not yet. "Oh my God, I thought I just lost on 18," Edelblut said as she walked off the green. "We're playing 36? Sounds good. I still have a chance, then. " Instead of winning the Women's Match Play Championship right then, Spotleson carried a one-hole lead into the second 18 of the Championship Flight.

LANCASTER - David Poitevent, Amy Yang's caddie, stood on the 18th green Sunday and peered over Yang like an umpire standing behind a catcher. The two were staring down a 12-foot par putt set up by a misplaced drive and an approach that fell well short of the green. If she made the putt, Yang would force a three-hole playoff with In Gee Chun. If she missed, Yang would finish behind Chun in the U.S. Women's Open at Lancaster Country Club. The putt rolled to the left of the hole. Yang knocked in a bogey moments later.

LANCASTER - In the soft, still light of a perfect Sunday morning, the map, the one that said Paradise was 10 miles east of here, appeared to be mistaken. In golf, the aesthetics are as important as the athletics. And at 7:15 a.m., 90 minutes before the earliest tee time on its final day in the U.S. Women's Open spotlight, Lancaster Country Club was as visually appealing as a sports venue gets. From the lofty vantage of the third tee, 100 yards above the landing area, you could look down and see the swollen, mirror-calm Conestoga Creek.

LANCASTER - The 20-year-old South Korean cracked a smile and gently pumped her fist when she birdied No. 17 to move to 9-under for the tournament. In Gee Chun knew then that she had a very real chance to win the biggest event in women's golf. Chun came on like a freight train in the final round yesterday, chasing Amy Yang relentlessly after entering the day trailing Yang by three strokes. In dramatic fashion, she birdied four of the last seven holes en route to a final-round 66 and a one-shot victory over Yang in the the U.S. Women's Open at Lancaster Country Club.

LANCASTER - Stacy Lewis' birdie putt on the first hole dropped into the cup and a single spectator cried out, "America. " That, of course, was the country of choice among the majority of golf fans causing human gridlock on the cart paths at the Lancaster Country Club early Sunday afternoon. As the greatest hope for the United States in a field flooded with talented South Koreans, Lewis had given herself some early momentum on the final day of the 70th Women's U.S. Open, and she was going to get plenty of support on her up-and-down journey over the next four hours.

LANCASTER - The walk with the Parks Saturday afternoon was not a walk in the park. When it was over, the back ached, the knees barked, and the level of respect for the women and men (most of the caddies are males) navigating this tortuous maze of golf holes at the Lancaster Country Club had grown along with the blisters on my feet. If the app on my iPhone was accurate, the journey through the third round of the Women's U.S. Open with the unrelated Parks - Inbee from South Korea and Jane from Chicago - covered more than five miles.

LANCASTER - Megan Khang, a 17-year-old who at 5-foot-1 wasn't much taller than the driver she leaned against on Lancaster Country Club's 10th tee, was leading the 70th U.S. Women's Open on Thursday morning. One shot behind the Massachusetts high school senior at that moment were Lydia Ko, another 17-year-old who also happened to be the world's No. 2-ranked player, and Morgan Pressel, who at age 18 in 2007 became the youngest major winner in LPGA history. On Friday, at nearly the same point in the second round, Khang had faded, but 16-year-old Muni He, a Chinese national transplanted to California, was tied for the 4-under lead.
