Edward Enninful's Vogue issue is released, a year of Donald Trump and Boris Johnson's comments could double Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's sentence

  • There's irony in the fact that the sexual misconduct of several male MPs could play a large part in bringing down our second-ever female prime minister, but it could also be an opportunity for Theresa May to make a small difference in her remaining months as PM, Gaby Hinsliff wrote

  • Boris Johnson incorrectly suggested that Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe had travelled to Iran on a reporting job, as opposed to a family visit. She now potentially faces a double sentence in an Iranian prison as a result of his remarks.

  • Keith Urban attempted to secure his position as king of the mainsplainers with a song titled "Female", which he wrote with the Weinstein debacle in mind. It's time we stopped praising men for engaging in performative 101 feminism, Daisy Buchanan said

  • The new £7m John Lewis Christmas ad came out and it's less dramatic and heartwrenching than we anticipated. But that's a good thing, argued Emily Baker.

  • Someone tried to exploit singer and songwriter Sia by attempting to sell naked photos of her. True to form, she beat them to the punch and released the photo herself on social media.

  • Edward Enninful's debut Vogue issue as editor was released this week, featuring Adwoa Aboah and a selection of other fashion icons from a diverse range of backgrounds. But was it actually a success, asked Laura Craik.

  • A man has been put in jail for stalking his girlfriend for 21 years and, apparently, 40 months was an adequate sentence. 

  • It's been 40 years since the first successful round of IVF. Alexandra Heminsley considered how much we really know about the procedure today. 

  • Lupita Nyong'o spoke out about the importance of the authentic representation of black women when she learnt that her hair had been heavily edited in Grazia's cover photo. The magazine has since issued an apology. 

  • It's been a year since Trump was elected, although it feels more like five. Lucy Dunn spoke to her Trump-supporter cousin to gauge her feelings on his presidency so far.

  • Trump trauma is a thing. And, despite all the time that has passed since last year's election, the pain is just as fresh as ever. Sian Norris talks to women to find out how it all feels 12 months later.

  • Everyone but Twitter itself seems to be in agreement that the ability to post 280-character tweets is a bad, bad idea. But, alas, they've given us (and all the trolls) access to it anyway. Marisa Bate points out the dangers of the new character limit.

  • There's now a Googledoc with a list of 100 allegations against Harvey Weinstein. It'll "advance the case against Weinstein, but it has taken the bravery of 100 women to keep the momentum going," said Kat Lister.

  • The man who shot dead 26 people in a church in Texas had an abusive history, like many men before him who have committed violent acts of terror.
