From time to time I just have to shake my head and ask myself... What year is this? There are certain things that happen in everyday life that you think are a thing of the past but apparently we haven't evolved as much as we think we have. I love Idaho and I'm proud that we're constantly included in Top 10 list however, This is not one of those moments. According to a Wallet Hub study Idaho is 2020's 2nd Worst State for Women's equality. Check out the full list and methodology below.

Methodology

To determine where women receive the most equal treatment in the U.S., WalletHub compared the 50 states across three key dimensions: 1) Workplace Environment, 2) Education & Health and 3) Political Empowerment.
