By many measures, the District is the best city in the country for working women, based on an annual study by Lending Tree’s Magnify Money.

The study looked at eight factors in determining its best (and worst) cities for working women, including employment, health care, business ownership, management positions, gender pay gap, child care, number of female elected officials and workplace protections. This is D.C.’s second straight year at the top.

D.C. has the highest percentage of managerial positions in its workforce filled by women, at 43.9 percent.

Boston; Providence, Rhode Island; and Sacramento are other top cities for women in management roles, at 43 percent each.

D.C. also has among the strongest parental and pregnancy leave policies of the 50 cities studied, second only to Boston. Of the top 10 cities, the District is where child care is the most affordable based on incomes, costing an average of 19.9 percent of women’s median earnings.

The unemployment rate among working-age women in D.C. is 5.3 percent, and 31.7 percent of businesses in the District are owned by women.

The gender pay gap in D.C. is also among the lowest, with women earning an average of 84 percent of their male counterparts.
