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.

The presumed vast numbers of women with low libido are not that hot for the first drug ever approved to heat up their desire. A total of 1,841 prescriptions for Addyi were filled in its first 10 weeks on the U.S. market, according to health-care industry analyst Symphony Health Solutions. (Viagra, the first erectile dysfunction drug, tallied more than 36,000 prescriptions in just its first week in 1998.) At this rate, Valeant Pharmaceuticals International will need a long time to recoup the $1 billion it pledged to pay to acquire Addyi two days after regulators greenlighted the product in August.

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.

A Delran High School graduate officially is the best women's soccer player in the world. Carli Lloyd received that honor Monday, winning the 2015 FIFA women's player of the year award. After Lloyd's heroics in last summer's World Cup, she was a lock to win it. Nobody had ever scored three goals in a Women's World Cup final. Lloyd did it in 16 minutes against Japan. Her third goal was the highlight that will stay with Lloyd forever. After juking a Japanese defender, Lloyd put her foot into the ball a step inside midfield.

SUSPENDED Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin rivals Attorney General Kathleen Kane in his pattern of outrageous behavior. Last week, the Inquirer revealed that, only days before his hearing at which a judicial ethics court ultimately suspended him for his participation in pornographic email exchanges, Eakin tried to stack the deck of key appointments in the Philadelphia court system. He tried, and failed, to wield his influence just before three new Supreme Court justices were about to be sworn in. Bad dog!
