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 25 key indicators of living standards for women. Our data set ranges from median earnings for female workers to women’s preventive health care to the female homicide rate.
From Wallet Hub:
In 2023, 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 more than two-thirds of all minimum-wage workers in the U.S. Their political representation also suffers, as women make up nearly 51% of the U.S. population but only 24% of the Senate and 28% of the House of Representatives. Ratings include: Earnings, Unemployment, Poverty, Women owned business, High School Graduation Rates, Voting Participation, Insurance coverage, Life Expectancy, and Femicide rates.
