1. Why the f--- don't other nations follow France's lead and pass an anti-street harassment law? Wouldn't the world be MUCH better if they did?!

2. Is it time to ditch the MMP to prevent the rise of another Winston Peters? Even Mike Hosking thinks so.

3. Amid ever-more revelations of how effing disgusting powerful men in Hollywood are, what can we do to fight back? Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon and Lena Headey are speaking up now too about the abuse they have experienced.

4. Will the rest of the world follow California's example and legally recognise there are more genders than just female and male? They need to, stat.

5. Can we talk about Lisa Wilkinson's bravery in walking away from her high-profile job over its gender pay gap? Pro tip for employers: pay women and men equally if you want to actually thrive as a business.
