1. How big of a deal is it that the US and Israel are withdrawing from UNESCO? When it comes to preserving the past, huge.

2. Should men like Bernie Sanders be featured speakers at women's conferences? It's a question the Women's March organisers in the US are dealing with right now.

3. What do you think of #WomenBoycottTwitter? It has drawn controversy, with some saying it's important to stand in solidarity, and others saying women shouldn't silence their voices.

4. Are the Portland Thorns a model the Black Ferns and other women's sports teams can follow to grow their fanbase? Let's hope so.

5. Will any women rise to the top of China's political leadership anytime soon? The politburo of the world's most-populous nation will meet for the first time in years beginning on Wednesday, but few people expect any women to be appointed to leadership posts.
