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.

By Sarah Chamberlain For women voters, there's really no getting around it: The candidacy of Donald Trump is an issue, but not in any traditional sense. Alternatively, the one name that didn't come up at the recent Republican Main Street Partnership (RMSP) roundtable at Villanova was Hillary Clinton's. Going into next week's Republican convention, Trump can go a long way to courting the votes he needs to win in November. As RMSP is fond of reminding people - women's issues are voters' issues.
