  • The investigation of Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz (aka the "sexting" D.A.) is reopened.
  • Ahead of the 30th anniversary of China's one-child policy, activists renew the call for the law to be repealed.
  • Theories abound about why it is that "the more a man depends on his female partner's paycheck, the better the chances he will cheat."
  • Peggy Orenstein observes that increasingly "simply acknowledging -- celebrating -- that we are female, alluding to the idea that we can make something happen, even though it's never clear what that something is, or whether it's in our best interests, is presented as empowerment."
  • The healthcare reform bill is hardly ideal, but Planned Parenthood celebrates the good news (and vows to continue fighting to change the bad news).
