1. After another chemical weapons attack against his own people, will the world move to take out Assad? US intelligence and the UN have concluded that the Syrian government was behind another chemical weapons attack that killed more than 90 people.

2. Are people listening to Weinstein survivors because they're "famous and white?" Uncomfortable as that sounds, that's what Jane Fonda is saying.

3. Has Saudi Arabia just literally given a robot more rights than women? Uh-huh.

4. How big of a victory is it that Scottish women can now take the abortion pill at home? It's great news, but the battle for equality and bodily autonomy is far from over.

5. What was IKEA thinking?! They clearly weren't thinking at all.
