NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Can women really have it all? Can they be the masters of their domains -- at home, at work and still get some "me-time" in between? Well, it depends on where you live. In some states, having it all is easier than in others.
Many books have been written about the subject. Facebook (FB) COO Sheryl Sandberg's "Lean In" addresses how women can empower themselves to truly achieve all of their goals, both at the office and in their personal lives.
Still, it's easier said than done. A new report by personal finance Web site WalletHub, identified states where having it all was "easier" than others. The report took into account 12 metrics most necessary for a working mother's life. The metrics were categorized in three areas: child care, professional opportunities, and work-life balance.
Specific issues the report analyzed were a state's day-care and child care expenses; pay gap between women's earnings and those of men; percentage of families in poverty; and other issues like average commute times and average length of workday.
Data used to create these rankings were obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Child Care Aware of America, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the National Partnership for Women & Families and WalletHub Research.
Here are the 10 best states for moms to have it all. And when you're done be sure to check out the worst states for working mothers.
Child care rank: 15
Professional opportunities rank: 23
Work-life balance rank: 13
With 11.6 million residents, Ohio was named the tenth best state for working mothers by WalletHub.
A second unrelated report by financial education resource NerdWallet, ranked two cities in Ohio -- Columbus and Cincinnati -- in the top 20 best cities for working women based on women's wages, cost of living, unemployment rates and labor force participation rates.
The state reported an unemployment rate of 5.1% in March, lower than the national average of 5.5%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, making it a good state for workers to look for jobs.
Note: The unemployment numbers cited here and for every state are as of March 2015.
