Washington is one of the 10 best states for issues related to the well-being of women, according to a new report by the Center for American Progress, a Washington, D.C.-based liberal think tank.

The rankings were based on how well women fared in 36 factors that fell into three overarching categories: Economic security, leadership, and health.

Washington ranked 10th with an overall grade of A-. ¬†We didn’t ace any one category, but were rewarded for consistency; we ranked 11th in both economic and health issues, and 15th in leadership.

Maryland took the top spot, ahead of Hawaii and Vermont, while Louisiana edged out Utah for the distinction of being the worst state for women.
