Though the ladies in Maryland might have been lacking in healthcare, the women of Massachusetts certainly make up for it. Thanks to state requirements, 96% of women have health coverage. While healthcare is beneficial for everyone, for women this blanket coverage helps to ensure that each year, 85% of women are screened for breast and cervical cancer. Women in the Bay State are for the most part making comfortable salaries, with a median at $46,213. Not so great, however, is the plight of the working mother in Massachusetts: childcare there is the most expensive in the U.S., costing $16,500 annually.
