Hey, ladies! Did you know that North Dakota is a great state for women to live and work?

All 50 states and the District of Columbia were compared by WalletHub to decide the best and worst places for women to live. On a list of 51, North Dakota is the fourth best state for women to live, work, and thrive. How did WalletHub determine that North Dakota is an exceptional place for women?

North Dakota is #4 of 51 on the list of "Best and Worst" Places for Women to Live in the United States.

WalletHub determined the ranks across "26 key indicators of living standards for women," including things like median earnings for females and the female homicide rate - yikes! You can see the best and worst places for women to live below:

WalletHub's study found that North Dakota is a great place for women to live because of socioeconomic and social well-being, health and safety, high rate of high school graduation, and low unemployment rate. I suppose it is not surprising that Nodak came in fourth place - we stay in school and work hard! You can get the full breakdown of the study from WalletHub.

I can't speak for all women, but I feel like a pretty lucky woman to live in North Dakota - even if I complain about it. I became especially grateful for living here after things got serious with the pandemic. I was able to maintain my job and a slight sense or normalcy in my life, all this time. Seriously, if I was still living in Colorado, I am not sure I would have been able to maintain my job and residence during the pandemic.
