Michelle Griffin in the Herald explores how even in today's workplace women are still the ones who face the more difficult choices around parenting and career.

And finally the world's population supposedly hit 7 billion in the last month. Rob Brooks writes in the Conversation that if you're serious about population control, you should be serious about feminism.
