Lots of people think that Elizabeth Warren's gender played a part in her dropping out of the Democratic race. "Gender in this race?" she said last week. "You know that is the trap question for every woman. If you say, 'Yeah. There was sexism in this race,' everyone says, 'Whiner!'"

Last week was a very female week with International Women's Day. But it was a bad week for women too. Or make that a bad year. Or a bad decade. Take your pick.

Kate Middleton came and we all wondered where she had bought her clothes. Not a single man wondered if he should go out and buy one of William's shirts. We listened to advice about Covid-19 from manels and more manels. 'The Late Late' managed to unearth a woman in public health but she only really talked about washing hands. And if you were about to accuse me of whining, a new study proves beyond doubt that gender bias is keeping women down.
