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.

If there is one thing the world doesn't need any more of, it's grown women judging other grown women's character based on fashion choices. It's old. It's tired. It's unnecessary. But with Twitter, it's all too easy. That is why Ayesha Curry's unsolicited and judgmental commentary on the state of women's fashion is still trending hard on the social media site. The 26-year-old wife of Golden State Warriors' point guard Stephen Curry, and mom of little girl Riley, was thumbing through her Style Weekly Saturday night when she realized that - gasp - women in Hollywood show a lot of skin.

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.

I was dismayed to see the interview with Arnetta Stewart and Katja Pigur of the Maternity Care Coalition (" An effort to increase breast-feeding in Philly " which appreared on June 5). While the breast-feeding initiation rates cited are spot-on (78 percent of mothers initiating breast-feeding), the hand-wringing about their inadequacy is not. These statistics do not take into account the deeply personal reasons the remaining 22 percent do not breast-feed from birth - women who have undergone mastectomies, women on certain contraindicated or borderline medications, and women who have histories of sexual trauma, to name a few. Seen in proper context, 79 percent nationwide is pretty darn impressive.

From the start, Ronald Dorsey had been considered a suspect in the 2014 slayings of Dollie May "Grandmom" Evans and her roommate, Ruby April Thomas. Evans, 67, was known to sell crack cocaine from the house in the 4700 block of Vista Street in Holmesburg. So was Evans' boarder, James Mears, recently paroled from prison on a 2010 gun case and on the lam from a halfway house. And detectives knew of a flurry of cellphone calls between Mears and Dorsey, a drug dealer who lived on the 1100 block of E. Upsal Street, in the hours after the slayings.

Hillary Clinton has been a part of national life for so long, known to haters and admirers alike by first name alone, that it was almost easy to overlook the monumental nature of her impending accomplishment. Not anymore. After voters Tuesday cemented her status as the first woman to clinch the presidential nomination of a major political party, millions of women reveled in Hillary's historic moment. They let their young daughters stay up late to watch on TV, felt a certain catch in their throat, and perhaps, like Clinton herself, wished their own mothers had been alive to witness it. "First time since 1789 - that's a long time," said Rita Conley, 75, a former Democratic committeewoman, who lives in North Wales, Montgomery County.

With the recent opening of Moore College of Art & Design's juried alumni exhibition, consider the story of the first visual arts college for women in the United States: Moore's antecessor, the Philadelphia School of Design for Women (PSDW). Founded in 1848, PSDW was the first of several such institutions to appear in Boston, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati. However, art for art's sake was not the goal of philanthropist and PSDW founder Sarah Worthington Peter. At the time of the school's inception, thousands of unmarried and widowed women worked from home, which - in the 19th century - did not mean telecommuting in one's pajamas.

I HAVE BEEN TOLD by otherwise intelligent, alert, accomplished women that I must vote for Hillary Clinton. Some have said it's because failing to cast my vote for Bill's charming better half will be a de facto "plus one" for Team Trump. While I doubt that is the case, and polls seem to bear me out, it's a fairly respectable argument: Hillary minus me minus many other women equals Donald. But there are also the sisters who tell me I must vote for Hillary because she is a woman, and I am a woman, and It Is Time.

North Carolina's players flooded onto the field Sunday at Talen Energy Stadium and swarmed goalie Megan Ward as the clock ran out. The NCAA championship celebration was just beginning. Then the players went back to the sideline where they embraced their families in the crowd. Marie McCool, who graduated from Moorestown High, said earlier this week that her team had "unfinished business in Philly. " She met her mother, who had tears in her eyes. Outside the Tar Heels locker room minutes later, someone yelled, "If you're not first, you're last!"

Maryland's players met their goalie and walked slowly off the field at halftime of their NCAA women's lacrosse semifinal. Syracuse's players ran into the tunnel at Talen Energy Stadium. With Maryland leading by seven goals at the break, it made sense. The Orange had a lot to figure out. Their offense had scored only three goals and the Terrapins converted on all but one of their shots. "I think our girls really came out on fire," Maryland head coach Cathy Reese said. The top-seeded Terrapins (22-0)

North Carolina played keep-away for nearly nine full minutes and it was just barely enough to end Penn State's season in women's lacrosse. With a minute and a half left Friday, the Nittany Lions finally forced a turnover and had a chance to tie the score. But Tar Heels goalie Caylee Waters came up with one final stop to seal the victory. "That's what it takes to make a national championship game," North Carolina coach Jenny Levy said of the save. The third-seeded Tar Heels (19-2)
