It's a great time to be a woman in Connecticut.

March is Women's History Month and March 8 is International Women's Day. To celebrate, financial website WalletHub took a look at which states are the best for women. Taking into consideration two categories (social and economic well-being, and health care and safety), Connecticut fell among the top states for women–in fact it moved up in the rankings since last year.

Click through the slideshow to see how Connecticut ranks in specific categories as well as the best and worst states for women. Visit WalletHub for the full report.

The Nutmeg State ranked 6th overall in 2019 (up from number 8 in 2018), placing high in both categories. In social and economic well-being, the state ranked 14th. The category measured aspects such as earnings, unemployment, poverty, and equality. In fact, Connecticut placed fourth in lowest percent of poverty among women.

In the category of health care and safety, which measured uninsured rate, preventative care, and life expectancy, Connecticut placed second. Connecticut ranks fourth for lowest percentage of women in poverty and fourth as well for life expectancy at birth.

The best state for women? For the fourth year in a row, it's Minnesota, which ranked as the best in economic and social well-being and third best in health care and safety. Mississippi took the spot for worst state for women, ranking lowest in economic and social well-being and third in health care and safety.

The study also pointed out that "blue" states, or primarily Democratic states, are more women-friendly; Connecticut's electoral votes have gone to the Democratic candidate for president in the last seven elections.
