Two Louisiana cities have some work to do.

A recent study shared by WalletHub found the best and worst cities for women to reside in. Sadly, two major cities in Louisiana made the list of WORST cities for women to live in.

So, what makes a city bad for a woman to "call home?" One important variable that they took into consideration is the unemployment rate for women in each city.

Also, taken into consideration when determining the best and worst cities for women to live in were safety, healthcare, and economic stability.

As you'll soon see, some cities get it when it comes to providing for females, while others have a lot of work to do to improve the lifestyle of women in them.


So, let's look at the BEST cities for women to live in, and then we will highlight the worst. According to Wallethub, here are the ten best cities for when to reside in.

  1. Columbia, MD
  2. South Burlington, VT
  3. Irvine, CA
  4. Fremont, CA
  5. Santa Clarita, CA
  6. Seattle, WA
  7. Gilbert, AZ
  8. Overland Park, KS
  9. Yonkers, NY
  10. Pearl City, HI

Now to the WORST cities for women to settle in.

  1. Jackson, MS
  2. Gulfport, MS
  3. Brownsville, TX
  4. Huntington, WV
  5. Shreveport, LA
  6. Augusta, GA
  7. Charleston, WV
  8. Laredo, TX
  9. Mobile, AL
  10. New Orleans, LA

As you can see in the list above, Shreveport and New Orleans have made the list of the worst cities for women to live in.

If there's any bright side here, at least no Louisiana city came in at number one like Jackson, MS., but still we do have some work to do in some of our cities to improve the lives of women in them.

And with the political season in full swing, it wouldn't be a bad idea for any politician to note this and commit to improving the way of life for women in these cities.
