WomenWhat are the best markets for women in business? Bizjournals.com has the answers … and the Baltimore-Washington region comes out looking fairly good.

It recently ran a package of articles that highlighted the top U.S. markets for female business owners and executives, with the San Francisco area finishing as the clear winner.
