Of anywhere that a woman could live in the U.S. and have tons of opportunities, highest standards of living and health standards, Minnesota was just named the best state for women and the #1 place for women to live.

The folks at Wallethub have just released their study on 2018's Best & Worst States for Women, and the North Star State came in at an easy #1 out of all the places in the United States! There were a total of 23 key indicators of living standards for women that range from median earnings for female workers to women’s preventive health care to female homicide rate.

  1. Minnesota
  2. Massachusetts
  3. Vermont
  4. North Dakota
  5. Wisconsin
  6. Maine
  7. Hawaii
  8. Connecticut
  9. Iowa
  10. New Hampshire

Notice that almost all the states surrounding Minnesota are in the top 10. Unfortunately South Dakota ranks at #24 on the list for whatever reason. The bottom line is the upper Midwest is easily prime living for women out of anywhere in the United States.

Come to Minnesota and pull up a chair ladies! You're in a state that constantly ranks at the top of most of the "best state" categories, and we're just going to keep getting better.
