SCROLLING • Just when we thought it was safe to look our age (only kidding!), Canadian news anchor Lisa LaFlamme was sacked for going grey. But don't worry, we're hashtag fighting back, with #greyhairdontcare... • In yet more double-standards news, 36-year-old Finnish PM Sanna Marin has been forced to apologise for partying. Hmmmm. • What one woman learnt from learning to drive at 37. • Nora Ephron was right about everything – except this. • If you enjoyed my chat with Emma Forrest on The Shift podcast last week, you might like this piece she wrote about sex with a younger man.
