Study Ranks Nevada Among Worst States For Women

2000px-flag_of_nevada.svg_.png

March is Women’s History Month, which is why Wallethub did a study about the best and worst states to live in if you are a woman. 

To identify the most women-friendly states, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbiaacross 15 key metrics. The two big factors were economic and social well being and health and safety. 

And guess how Nevada fared? 

Well, it’s not THE worst…. But it’s the third worst, according to the study. That’s right – Nevada ranked 49th. South Carolina and Louisiana ranked below the Silver State.
