Best and Worst States for Women to Live and Work

by Anne Moratto | August 20, 2019

 

In 2019, women in some parts of America still get the short end of the stick — even as they outnumber men in most states. For instance, women represent nearly two-thirds of all minimum-wage workers in the U.S. Their political representation also suffers, as women make up 51% of the U.S. population but only 25% of the Senate and 23.4% of the House of Representatives. And the prevalence of sexual harassment remains a prominent issue in 2019’s political landscape.

In order to determine how women are faring and where they can find the best opportunities relative to where they live, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 24 key indicators of living standards for women. Their data set ranges from median earnings for female workers to women’s preventive health care to female homicide rate.

Minnesota is number one. California is number 16.  See where your state ranks on this report from WalletHub.
