The best-paying U.S. city for women is San Jose, California, ForbesWoman reports. While women make just 70 to 80 cents to their male counterparts' dollar on average, women in San Jose earn an average of $67,052 per year, largely "because 43.7% have a bachelor’s degree or higher and are concentrated in management, business, science and arts occupations (48.4%) rather than service jobs (17.4%)." On the other end of the spectrum is McAllen, Texas, where the average woman makes just $31,287 annually.
