The Center for American Progress recently published an article reporting their research on some of the socioeconomic conditions women are presently facing in society entitled, The State of Women in America. The research was conducted on each of the fifty states and was based on a total of 36 various factors, falling under the categories of economic security, leadership, and health. The results were ranked and then the conditions of each state were compared to each other in an overall ranking. Unfortunately, North Carolina received a devastating "D-" as its overall grade and was ranked 39th nationwide. In terms of leadership, North Carolina received a "C" and was ranked 24th in the nation based on these factors.
