News and Press MA women have 2nd highest quality of life

The Bay State isn’t the top dog when it comes to quality of life for women, according to a new study, but it’s close.

In honor of Women’s History Month, WalletHub, a personal finance social network,
published “2015’s Best and Worst States for Women.” Massachusetts ranked No. 2 on the list, trailing only Minnesota.

Massachusetts has the lowest rate of uninsured females, the study says, and the highest percentage of women up-to-date on cervical and breast cancer screenings.

The report ranked each state based on economic and social well-being – Massachusetts got No. 3 for that category – and health care access, for which the commonwealth was rated No. 2.
