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.

Awhile back, a reader wanted me to investigate whether there was an evolutionary explanation for women sleeping around. He didn't come at the question directly, but asked me to look at female low self-esteem and evolution. I pressed on how such low self-esteem was manifested, and that's when the sex question came out. He said he was worried about his daughters. The exchange left me with an interlocking series of questions: Why do some women sleep around? Does sleeping around have anything to do with self-esteem?

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.

P ATRICIA ARQUETTE made a big deal of the country's male-female pay disparity during her acceptance speech at this year's Oscars. Hopefully, folks in the audience listened, because the American Civil Liberties Union is asking federal and California civil-rights agencies to investigate what it calls "the systemic failure" to hire female directors in the entertainment industry. The ACLU of Southern California and the national ACLU Women's Rights Project said yesterday that they were moved to act after compiling statistical evidence of "dramatic disparities" in the hiring of women as film and TV directors.

TWO WOMEN accused of helping a pimp kill and then dismember a Northeast Philadelphia man in 2013 after their scheme to rob him went awry pleaded guilty yesterday to robbery and conspiracy and avoided murder convictions. Stephanie Foulke, 23, and Angel Weston, 22, were each immediately sentenced to five to 10 years in prison, plus 2 1/2 years' probation for their crimes, according to court records. Murder and abuse-of-corpse charges against both women were dropped. Foulke and Weston were arrested in 2013 along with Keith Tolbert, 35, in connection with the Aug. 26, 2013, murder of Francis Zarzycki, 40, during the botched robbery.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Penn women's lacrosse team formed a circle in front of its bench and each player put an arm around her closest teammate. Some players cried. Others lightly laughed. After chasing Syracuse (15-7, 3-4 Atlantic Coast) around a rain-soaked field for 60 minutes, the Quakers (14-6, 6-1 Ivy League) saw their season end in a 13-10 loss to the Orange at SU Soccer Stadium on Sunday afternoon. It's the second straight year that Penn's NCAA tournament run ended in the second round.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - After not seeing the ball well all afternoon, Penn goalie Lucy Ferguson made the biggest save of the game. With the last seconds ticking off the clock in overtime, Albany's Sarah Martin fired a point-blank shot that Ferguson speared out of the air. Ferguson paused for a second, the ball resting in the pocket of her stick. Then she clenched her fists as her teammates streamed onto the field, celebrating the Quakers' (14-5, 6-1 Ivy League) 11-10 victory over the Great Danes (14-5, 5-1)

Q: I've given up on Internet dating and decided to try to date women I meet at public events, bars, parties, etc. Can you suggest any good pick-up lines? Steve: I used three lines in my bachelor days: "Don't I know you?," "What's your sign?" and "Pleasure me, lusty wench!" In 20 years of being single, none of these lines worked even once. So I'm going to have to defer to Mia on this one. Mia: Lines? Really? Just say, "Hello. " Meeting someone isn't a game or something you try to trick someone into by saying something slick.
