Despite advances toward social equality for women, the gender gap in the U.S. has expanded. According to a recent study from WalletHub, a personal finance website, in 2020 the U.S. failed to place in the top 10 — or even the top 50 — of the World Economic Forum’s ranking of 153 countries based on gender equality. Additionally, women have been laid off at a greater rate than men during the pandemic. Women are also still disproportionately underrepresented in leadership positions, representing only around 24 percent of legislators and 25 percent of Fortune 500 board seats. To determine where women receive the most equal treatment in the U.S., WalletHub compared the 50 states in the U.S. across three key dimensions: Workplace Environment, Education & Health and Political Empowerment. The top 5 states include Hawaii, Maine, Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona. Click here to see the full report and expert commentary.
