3. Is Myanmar's military engaged in a campaign of mass rape, sexual harassment and terror against Rohingya women? Evidence suggests so.

4. Despite failing to form a government, can Angela Merkel stay on as German chancellor? The world's most powerful woman has a few options.

5. How awesome is Lucy Nabiki Takona? If she passes exams this month, she will become only the second Maasai woman to become a safari guide in Kenya.
