What is the worst city in America for women to live in? According to 24/7 Wall Street, it’s Gadsden. The survey found that in Gadsden, the average woman earned only about 3/4ths of what most men earn in the city. And not many women in Gadsden have college degrees — only about 16 percent. Oh, the best city for women…the survey says, it’s Ithaca New York.
