1. Can we talk about sexism in rugby? Black Ferns star Portia Woodman is speaking out.

2. Are you excited for the Silver Scroll Awards? It's all women in the top five - for the first time ever.

3. Can we talk about girl-on-girl violence in schools? A 10-year-old Central Otago girl was punched and taunted for "looking like a boy" by a group of high school girls - who then also posted video of the attack online.

4. Is multi-level marketing simply a fancy way to describe pyramid schemes that disproportionately harm women? Yes.

5. What do you know about intersectionality? A podcast breaks it down.
