1. What do you know about Edith Windsor? The woman whose same-sex marriage fight helped pave the way for the legalisation of same-sex marriage in the US, has died.

2. Is sexism a problem at Apple? Why was only one woman on stage at the tech company's recent, ultra-hyped unveiling of new products? And why was she on stage for less than six minutes?

3. Is the virulently antisemitic "alt-right" a thing in Israel now? Bizarrely enough, yes.

4. How amazing is Beth Mowins? She just became the first woman to call a game of Monday Night Football. For the American football-obsessed US, it's a big deal.

5. Are you excited for Wonder Woman 2? Patty Jenkins is returning to direct it.
