Liberals List 15 Worst States for Women, and They All Have One Thing in Common


By on Wednesday, June 17, 2015

 Leftist “news” site Yahoo! reports this morning on “The 15 Worst States for Women.”
Nearly all of the results promoted in the piece rely on the thoroughly debunked myth of “unequal pay.” This bit of misinformation heavily skews the results to encourage readers to accept the left’s extreme political agenda that right-leaning states must be bad for women.
All of the states included on the list are either heavily or moderately Republican. 13 of the 15 are also located in either the West or the South, which have a long history of voting Republican.
But what else do you expect from a group that thinks Wyoming was the first state to allow women to vote in 1869 [see #10 below]? This is wrong on two counts: 1. Wyoming wasn’t a state in 1869, it was a territory. It wouldn’t officially join the Union until July 10, 1890. 2. New Jersey was actually the first state to allow women to vote, per its 1776 state constitution. Women voted in large numbers in New Jersey in the late 1790s and early 1800s, almost 100 years before Wyoming.
The only serious take away from the study comes from the results in Alabama, which has the country’s second-highest infant mortality rate: 8.6 deaths for every 1,000 live births. Unacceptable.
From Yahoo! News:
Maternity leave, birth control access, unequal pay and treatment in the workplace, sexual assault, catcalling on the streets, threats of violence for -gasp- talking about feminism in video games online: Women are grappling with a number of headline-grabbing issues these days. …
[WalletHub] ranked states based on women’s economic and social well-being (taking into account such data as median earnings, unemployment and poverty) as well as on women’s health issues (such as life expectancy at birth and the proportion of uninsured women). WalletHub’s state rankings for working moms, for having a baby, and for women’s equality were also a factor.
Here are the worst 15 states for women in America as ranked by WalletHub (with No. 1 being the worst of all):

15. Montana
Montana falls woefully short in categories such as median annual earnings for women ($31,500) and proportion of women-owned businesses (less than 25 percent), ranking among the bottom-five states for both. Its ratings for women’s equality and working moms are middle of the pack. It does rank better on female representation in government: Nearly 1 in 3 of Montana’s state legislators is female, when the national average is 1 in 4.
14. Pennsylvania
Full-time working women in Pennsylvania have median earnings that are almost $7,000 higher than their counterparts in Montana. But the Keystone State lands in the bottom 10 states for women’s equality, as Pennsylvanian women only earn about 76 percent of what men do. That’s about 2 percentage points lower than the national average. It also clocks in as one of the five worst states in the nation for having a baby.
13. Indiana
Indiana makes the lists of the five worst states for women’s equality and for lowest number of child care centers, per capita. It’s also tied with Montana and Nebraska for the state with the fifth-largest gender pay gap in the U.S. Women in Indiana make, on average, less than 75 percent of what men make in the state.
12. Alabama
Alabama is the worst state for giving birth and has the country’s second-highest infant mortality rate, 8.6 deaths for every 1,000 live births. That’s nearly 40 percent higher than the national average. Alabama currently has 20 female state legislators out of a possible 140, one of the five lowest percentages in the country.
11. Texas
At 21.2 percent, Texas has the highest percentage of uninsured women of any state in the U.S. On the economic side, Texas has one of the lowest female-to-male executive ratios in the country.
10. Wyoming
Nicknamed the Equality State for its distinction as the first in the U.S. to allow women to vote (in 1869), Wyoming now ranks dead last on WalletHub’s rankings for women’s equality. With full-time working women earning less than 70 percent of what their male peers do, Wyoming’s gender pay gap is larger than any state’s except Louisiana’s. Wyoming also currently has one of the three lowest percentages of women in any state legislature and has only one female state senator.
9. Idaho
For the most part, Idaho’s performance on women’s health issues is about average. The bad news for women in the Gem State is that it’s the second-worst for women’s economic and social well-being, in part because it’s second to last in percentage of women-owned businesses, at only 23.6 percent. And women working full-time jobs in Idaho average about $27,000 in earnings annually, 76 percent of what their male peers earn.
8. Nevada
Nevada ranks last in the U.S. for women’s health issues and has the second-highest rate of uninsured women in the U.S., with nearly 20 percent lacking health insurance coverage. And, at 9.6 percent, Nevada has the highest unemployment rate for women nationwide.
7. Georgia
Georgia clocks in right after Idaho for the second-highest female unemployment rate in the country at 9.3 percent. It also has one of the worst rates of uninsured women of all the states surveyed—shy of 18 percent of the female population.
6. West Virginia
The country roads of West Virginia apparently don’t lead to the polls: Women there voted at the lowest rate of any state in the U.S during the 2012 presidential election. And its gender wage gap is among the three worst in the country, with women in West Virginia earning 60 cents for every dollar men make. Women in the Mountain State also have the second shortest life expectancy at birth out of all the states.
5. South Carolina
South Carolina ranks next to last in female-to-male executive ratio. And as one of the three states with a solitary female member currently serving in its state Senate (alongside West Virginia and Wyoming), South Carolina has a legislature that is less than 14 percent female. South Carolina is also the fourth-worst state in which to have a baby, according to WalletHub.
4. Oklahoma
Oklahoma is where the wind comes sweeping down the plain, which apparently clears out most of the medical professionals concerned with women’s health. The state ranks third to last in number of OB-GYNs, midwives and pediatricians per capita, and it places in the worst five states for female life expectancy at birth. Political participation is also lower for women in Oklahoma than in almost any other state, with roughly one female member for every eight state legislators and with less than 55 percent of eligible female voters having cast ballots in the 2012 presidential race.

3. Louisiana
At 23 percent, Louisiana’s poverty rate for women is one of the three highest in the nation, so it’s no shock that the state ranks second-worst for women’s overall economic and social well-being. Another factor contributing to that ranking is its gender pay gap, which is the worst in the country. Women earn slightly less than two-thirds of median wages for men in the state. When it comes to women’s health, Louisiana manages, barely, to avoid a bottom-five ranking. But it’s still next-to-last for having a baby.
2. Mississippi
Mississippi is tied for the third-highest percentage of unemployed women 8.6 percent (of course, unemployment is high in Mississippi in general). Women in the Magnolia State have the lowest life expectancy at birth of anywhere in the U.S., and Mississippi has the highest overall infant mortality rate in the nation. Back on the economic side, Mississippi is one of the three worst states for working mothers, and it lays claim to the highest percentage of female residents living in poverty at a whopping 24 percent.
1. Arkansas
Earning the unenviable title of “Worst State in the U.S. for Women,” Arkansas ranks last for women’s economic and social well-being because it’s among the five states with the lowest proportion of female-owned businesses (under 25 percent) and highest percentage of women living in poverty (19 percent). It’s also the state with the second-lowest percentage of women who voted in the 2012 presidential election at just over 50 percent. Only West Virginia’s was lower.

    An operative of some flavor I would bet. Maybe an Obummer supporter lack of intelligence worker, or one of the many groups trying to kick off an uprising among the usual groups of easily led, information deprived special ones.

  3. Are Americans starting to get it now? The US government no longer represents them, nor is it capable of representing them even if "it" wanted to. Only when the unlawful occupying regime in Washington has been lawfully abolished and reformed will Americans be afforded the opportunity to government themselves again.

  9. So what LEO wife put this on her car, so we can have this pathetic discussion, on freedom of speech- I dislike cops, but to shoot one is a bit much, I smell a union hack did this- because frankly I never met a BMW owner that would put such a lame sticker on their car, they usually are filled with country club stickers and the stickers they give you in gated communities....this is a HUGE FAIL by the union to get the public to rally behind them, when will they get it, we hate bad cops, just like we hate bad service workers, we pay for a service and want what we paid for. I am on board with firing and taking the pensions of bad cops...but shooting- not really part of the justice system I want to be attached to.

  10. False flag? By whom? Much more likely, this is a rich, liberal Jew (i.e., the kind of people responsible for poisoning America with multiculturalism and PC) who genuinely hates police because s/he thinks they represent "white privilege" or some other mythical concept of anti-white hatred. It is people like you who discredit the very real concept of false flags. I grant you that police militarization is out of control, but what does that have to do with rich, white (likely Jewish) liberals trying to start a race war?

  11. "Officers make mistakes." - you don't say. Well, if ever the time comes when officers will be held responsible for these mistakes, then we can speak of trust, and being an equal part of society. Until such time, quityerwhining and clean your house.

  12. I find it hard to believe Trump could possibly be any worse than any member of the political carny bureaucrat profession.
    Even if the rare truth told is insulting and demeaning, it's gotta be better than non-stop lies from beginning to end.

  14. be happy - at least some of the cops who create this backlash with their behaviour do go to gaol. In Kanada NO uniformed or on-duty cop has EVER gone to prison for crimes committed (1867 - present)- they are above consequences and know it. Both countries need to examine the employment process to avoid the large numbers of liveried and armed goons. ANYONE who applies for this job should be suspect - gotta be a better way to hire quality people.

    George W. Bush: Hillary Clinton is like ‘my sister-in-law’ By Jose A. DelReal December 5 at 10:16 AM
    Former President Bush has spoken at length about his close ties to former President Bill Clinton, at times calling him his "brother from another mother."
    CNN's Candy Crowley asked Bush during an interview published Friday where that leaves Hillary Clinton: "My sister-in-law!" the president responded light-heartedly.

  24. G W Bush signed the north American union into law in 2004
    that is why the southern border is down ,the Northern border will come down once
    gun laws in USA mirror gun laws of Canada.. There has been and will continue to be false flag operations in order to accomplish this.
    make no mistake about this
    the last says of USA are at hand there will be no escape from this fate without blood in the streets and even then it will come.

  25. Except that over 100 million legal gun owners, owning some 300 million firearms are not about to give up that right - enshrined in the 2nd Amendment (the right to bear arms) - and will wage war against the Bolshevik-in-Chief and his illegal alien "army" and win. At least half of these gun owners are either hunters, combat veterans, or both; so, these qualities alone make them a mighty force in itself.
    Who knows? There may be a good chance of active military personnel joining in when TSHTF is upon us (many active military are not happy with what's going on).
