MA is the second best state from women to live in across the country, according to a study by WalletHub. The data set ranges from median earnings for female workers to women's preventive health care to female homicide rate.

With a total score of 78.22 Minnesota came in at number 1 with MA and Vermont taking the second and third place rankings.
