In observance of Women’s Equality Day on Aug. 26, WalletHub crunched the numbers to gauge the scope of gender-based disparities in each of the 50 U.S. states. Hawaii ranked first for gender equality while Wyoming was ranked last.  The United States ranked  23rd on the Global Gender Gap Index.

Wallet hub examined 10 key metrics, ranging from the gap in the number of female and male executives to the disparity between women’s and men’s life expectancy to the imbalance of their political representation. Here’s the breakdown for Wyoming.
