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.

CAIRO - A mob of hundreds of men assaulted women holding a march demanding an end to sexual harassment Friday, with the attackers overwhelming the male guardians and groping and molesting several of the female marchers in Cairo's Tahrir Square. From the ferocity of the assault, some of the victims said it appeared to have been an organized attempt to drive women out of demonstrations and trample on the pro-democracy protest movement. The attack follows smaller scale assaults on women this week in Tahrir, the epicenter of the uprising that forced Hosni Mubarak to step down last year.

At the moment, the only sound in Patrice Banks' auto repair shop in Upper Darby is the click of her trademark strappy red heels across the floor. Soon, though, if her plan pans out, the place will resound with revving engines, lug-nut guns, and blow dryers, while in the air the scents of 10W-30 motor oil and fresh nail polish commingle. Garages, almost always, are shrines to the Y chromosome. But Banks' vision for the Girls Auto Clinic and So Clutch Beauty Bar is XX: car care for women, by women.

As a heat wave gripping Philadelphia and the Mid-Atlantic stretched into a third day, city health officials said Saturday that there had been two heat-related fatalities, both of them older women suffering from cardiovascular disease. The city, along with the National Weather Service, extended its heat warning through Sunday evening and urged pregnant women, the elderly, and children at risk to avoid strenuous activities and working or playing in the hot sun. The two heat-related deaths, of a 67-year-old woman from Brewerytown and a 82-year-old woman from the Port Richmond area, brought the total number of heat-induced fatalities in Philadelphia this summer to six, according to the city's Department of Public Health.

Q: I met a guy at a convention and we really hit it off. We hung out all night. He called me the next day, and we agreed to meet. We've been talking ever since. We went out another time, too. I thought he might be the one. But at the end of the date, he started putting his hands on my butt, and he stuck his tongue in my mouth. It turned me off so bad that I haven't been out with him since. I'm fed up. Every time I meet a guy, things go well, and before I can even decide if I like him, they are feeling me up. I don't have anything against intimacy.

ISSUE | ABORTION Support all choices A commentary, "Rather than fund abortion, let's invest in alternatives" (Sunday), presented a false choice. We don't need to choose between respecting and supporting a woman who has decided to end her pregnancy and respecting and supporting a woman who has decided to continue her pregnancy. We can and should do both. However we feel about abortion, we can agree that politicians shouldn't force a woman to make a certain decision or stand in the way of what she decides is best for herself and her family.

By Dotty Brown This week, as 20 U.S oarswomen compete in Rio alongside the men, they might give thanks to the Philadelphia women who decades ago struggled against the current of their time to win the right to row, long after they had won the right to vote. The effort came in waves, starting in 1938 when the first competitive women's rowing club in the country, the Philadelphia Girls' Rowing Club, landed a berth on the Schuylkill only because Ernestine Bayer had been tipped off at her banking job that the Philadelphia Skating Club was moving out to Ardmore.

There had to be a time late in her U.S. Women's Amateur championship match Sunday when Eun Jeong Seong wondered if her opponent would be able to finish. The heat at Rolling Green Golf Club had gotten the better of Virginia Elena Carta, who needed to take a 15-minute break after the 31st hole and receive medical attention.
