According to a report by SmartAsset, the Midwest offers some of the best places for working women to put down roots. SmartAsset compiled a list based on factors like the gender pay gap; the percentage of women in the labor force; the ratio of working women to working men; the unemployment rate for women; and women’s income after housing. Half of the top 10, including the top three, are metro areas in the Midwest: Rochester, Minn.; Columbia, Mo.; and Topeka, Kans.
