    Brick in the face, sexist states, and stolen ID.

    A new study released this week is putting Arkansas first... as the most sexist state in the country.
    Scientists and economists used years of data from a biennial survey measuring American beliefs. The survey asked questions like...
    Should women should take care of running their home and leave running the country up to men, How likely it would be that you would vote for a woman for president and whether men are better suited emotionally for politics....Arkansas was followed by Utah, Alabama, West Virginia and Tennessee.
