Ohio named “sixth worst state to be a woman”

. February 11, 2020.

Congratulations, Buckeye State, you made the top ten in a list of U.S. states! Now the bad news: It was a list of the worst states for women. Career website Zippia recently published a ranking of all fifty states in terms of financial disparity between the sexes, and Ohio ranked sixth in the bottom ten— just ahead of Michigan at number seven. The list was compiled by taking into account the income gap between genders, the number of female CEOs, the percentage of women in poverty and overall life expectancy. West Virginia took number one as the worst state to be a woman, while Vermont was named the best.
