What’s The Worst State For Women?

You’d think that by 2013, women would have basically the same opportunities in all 50 U.S. states, but that’s not the case. So, what’s the worst state for women, concerning pay, etc..? Here’s the answer.

According to article written by Laura Bassett on huffingtonpost.com:

“Women in the United States earn an average of 77 cents for every dollar that men make, face many barriers to reproductive health care and are significantly underrepresented in leadership roles. But the worst state for women by far is Louisiana, according to a state-by-state examination of these issues released Wednesday by the Center for American Progress.

In terms of economic security, health and leadership representation, the analysis rates Louisiana the lowest. Full-time working women in Louisiana earn only 67 percent of what men earn, on average, and more than one in five women and girls in Louisiana are currently living in poverty.

Other states that earned an “F” overall in these categories are Utah, Oklahoma, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Arkansas, South Dakota, Indiana and Georgia.

Women living in Maryland, meanwhile, have the best quality of life, according to CAP’s analysis.”
