Is Louisiana a ‘Women Friendly’ State?
With March being Women’s History Month the personal finance website WalletHub has released its report on 2019's Best and Worst States for Women.
To identify the most women-friendly states, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 24 key metrics. The data set ranges from median earnings for female workers to women’s preventive health care to female homicide rate.
"According to the WalletHub findings, "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."
