A Study Conducted by Movehub Investigated the Welfare of Women Living in Each of the 50 States

The study cross-referenced factors such as the gender pay gap, political representation in the state legislature, equality in education, accessibility to health insurance, reproductive rights and the number of incidents of violence against women at the hands of men. The rankings from each individual factor were combined to determine an overall score.

According to the site, “states that scored poorly in terms of political representation also did badly on factors such as equal pay and women’s reproductive rights, suggesting that the quality of women’s lives is somewhat determined by inequality in government.”

Oklahoma ranked the lowest, a result which MoveHub attributes to recent laws making abortion less accessible to women causing the state to rate poorly on the reproductive rights scale. Oklahoma is notorious for its rather conservative approach to abortion. They even require “women seeking abortions to get the written permission of the fetus’ father.”

The BEST State by Far for Women in 2017 is…HAWAII

As if we needed another reason to love Hawaii.

Though the majority of us don’t have the luxury or the means to move cross-country at the moment, it’s nice to know that at least one of our 50 states is doing their best to protect women’s rights in anyway they can.

Tx horrible


Hawai'i 😊

New Jersey horrible

Bullshit! Texas is the best

I've lived in both Illinois and Arkansas, and have a lot of family in both states. I'd rate Arkansas as better than Illinois in most respects. My cousin and I both teach. she has 2nd graders in Illinois, and I have middle schoolers in Arkansas. We both live and work in similar sized communities. She is paid a bit more, but I wouldn't care to live in her community, and she loves mine and visits often. And now she's interested in a guy here...
