All Women in America Should See This Map

In 40 states, there is a slightly higher number of women than men, according to 2013 data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

I post this map as a service to any cynical female voter who doesn’t think her vote or voice matters in America and the stranglehold males have in politics can never be broken. The truth of the situation is that females hold more power in the United States than our government and media would like them to think they do. Females are the majority in forty of our fifty states, males are only the majority in nine states with Washington being a 50/50 tie.

Rhode Island has the largest population percentage of females in the U.S, followed by Alabama, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Oklahoma, each with 51.5 percent. The highest percentage of males are all located in the West. North Dakota, with 51.1 percent, has the highest ratio. Nevada is second with 50.4 percent, and Utah is third with 50.3 percent.

Yet our government is still overwhelmingly dominated by males. Just something to think about the next time an elected official decides he wants to be your gynecologist and makes backhanded remarks about the female gender. Know that females outnumber men in population and in registered voters.
