From WalletHub August 25, 2014
With Aug. 26 being Women’s Equality Day and the United States ranking a disappointing 23rd on the Global Gender Gap Index, the leading personal finance social network WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2014’s Best and Worst States for Women's Equality.
To gauge the scope of gender-based disparities in the United States, WalletHub ranked each of the 50 states based on 10 key metrics. They range from the gap in the number of female and male executives to the disparity between women’s and men’s life expectancy to the imbalance of their political representation. By highlighting the most and least gender-egalitarian states, we aim to help women find the best career opportunities.
