Women make up 51% of our population, but numbers haven't added up to things being better for females. Only 22% of the U.S. Senate and only 19% of the House of Representatives is comprised of women. And, women represent nearly two-thirds of all minimum-wage workers in the U.S. So the financial web WalletHub looked to discover the best place in the U.S. for women to live. Their data compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 23 key indicators of living standards for women.
With a score of 78.02, Minnesota ranked as the best place for women to live. Massachusetts was rated second with Vermont third.
South Carolina scored 42.08 to rank 46th on the list of 51. Louisiana had the distinction of being rated as the worst place for women to live.
