The US TV show Roseanne has been cancelled after its star posted a tweet that caused outrage. Roseanne Barr has been called racist for her tweet to a former aide of President Obama during a tirade that featured conspiracy theories and an attack on Chelsea Clinton.

Nearly a third of female New Zealand lawyers have been sexually harassed in the workplace, a new survey has found.
