Happy Women's History Month!

Women are more than half of the population of the country, so it's important to know in which states women have it best.

And, I'm happy to report that our great state, New York, is ranked 16th.  Not bad, New York, not bad!

WalletHub.com conducted an in-depth analysis of 2016’s Best & Worst States for Women.

Analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 15 key metrics.  Ranging from “median earnings for female workers” to “women’s preventive health care” to “female uninsured rate.”

So New York is better than 34 other states!  And, check out these stats-
