Handle sensitive questions with finesse.
"Women are more likely to be asked illegal or inappropriate questions during interviews, such as, 'What does your husband think about your career?' or 'Do you have plans to have children?' How you handle these questions can be the turning point in your interview. As a practical matter, if you don't mind answering the question, go ahead and do so. If you do mind answering the question, use honesty and humor to defuse the situation. For example, you might smile confidently and say, "I can truly say that in all my years of doing job interviews, no one has ever asked me that question. Why did you?" Usually, the question will be rephrased or dropped.
