Hard working independent women in Texas have got some bad news coming their way. A survey revealed that Texas is the third worst state for women's finances.


Compared to men, the median earnings for women are 25% lower than men in Texas.

According to a Forbes survey, the median woman’s salary in Texas is $39,615,
while the median for men is $52,823.


When it comes to a six-figure salary, women fall short. Only 13.19% of women working full-time make more than $100,000 compared to 24.61% of men.

A few different factors contribute to this finding, including the abundance of male-dominated fields like oil and gas.


Texas may be known as a business-friendly state, but when it comes to women-owned businesses, there's a delay. Nearly 60% of businesses in Texas are owned by men, on the latter, only 21.48% are women-owned.
