Sorry Ladies… The Last Place You Should Be Living In Is Louisiana [LIST]
According to this study, if you're a woman you are better off living anywhere but here.
When it comes to gender equality, women have made tremendous strides. However, the gap still remains widely spread across the country. Some states are better than others when it comes to the social and financial well-being of females, as detailed by WalletHub's recent study.
Unfortunately Louisiana is the worst offender.
I definitely don't agree with the results, but you read that right ladies. Despite the face that women outnumber men in all but nine states, women are still treated unfairly and Louisiana is the last place you want to live if you strive for equality. WalletHub broke their research down into two key dimensions, "Women's Economic and Social Well-Being" and "Women's Health Care and Safety." Those two umbrellas include issues like salary, healthcare, domestic violence and more.
Although Louisiana was only listed in the bottom five for one of these categories, we were still ranked last. Sounds fishy to me, but here you go.
Here's how it all shook out...
3 New Hampshire
6 North Dakota
16 New York
19 South Dakota
24 New Jersey
26 Rhode Island
33 North Carolina
37 District of Columbia
