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.

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?

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.

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.

Alice Paul wouldn't have wanted her Mount Laurel birthplace to become a historical museum. She focused on the future - on a day when equality for women finally would be enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. So I imagine the pioneering suffragist and feminist (1885-1977) would feel right at home at today's Paulsdale, headquarters of an educational and advocacy organization that carries on her mission. "When we decided to do something to honor Alice Paul, we weren't interested in a plaque," says Barbara Irvine, 70, of Cinnaminson, who helped found the Alice Paul Institute in 1985.

Sean Moses allegedly liked to record video of girls and women at the beach and sports events. He also did it secretly in store dressing rooms and homes - even of women in bed with him, police say. Then, they add, he posted the videos on a pornographic website on which he had a following. "Despicable and offensive" is how William Colarulo, superintendent of Radnor Township police, put it. Moses, 37, of the 700 block of Broad Acres Road in Narberth, was charged Monday with multiple counts of invasion of privacy, criminal use of a communication device, trespass, and related crimes.

SEAN MOSES, an accused serial peeping tom, wrote a tutorial to go with a video of two Villanova University coeds undressing that police say he posted on a porn website: "When you get caught out of position you ruin what could have been an awesome semester in voyeurism 101," he wrote. Moses, 37, got caught out of position. And yesterday, Radnor Township Police said, detectives ruined his "semester in voyeurism 101" when they showed up at the Narberth home he shares with his girlfriend and their 6-year-old daughter and arrested him on more than 200 criminal counts for his voyeuristic videos.
