After examining the data, iVillage found that West Virginia wasn’t the most ideal place for women to live. With a dismally low number of women holding degrees (just 17.8%) and the median income hovering around $29,651, women don’t have much of a chance at independence. Also, West Virginia has the dubious distinction of being the only state that doesn’t have laws to protect a woman’s right to breast-feed in either public or private.
