In 2023, women in some parts of America still get the short end of the stick — even as they outnumber men in most states. For instance, women represent more than two-thirds of all minimum-wage workers in the U.S. Their political representation also suffers, as women make up nearly 51% of the U.S. population but only 24% of the Senate and 28% of the House of Representatives.
