When you go out to buy something, have you ever tried to compare prices for men and women? There is a difference in the price of both sexes in certain items like clothes, accessories. Apparently, the products for women are slightly cheaper than the products for men, which clearly have similar features.
For example, if you were to buy a sweatshirt from the women’s section, a similar sweatshirt from Unisex or Men would have been cheaper. Wondering why this happens?
There is an invisible tax that is levied as a woman. It’s called ‘Pink Tax’. If you believe that sexual distances are being restored these days, you may need to reconsider. This tax is not levied by the government but there is a difference in the price of goods between men and women.
A man wants to buy a product that is ideally confirmed for women, or a man wants to buy something from a men’s catalog. The difference in price is evident in that aspect. There are certain trends by the biggest brands making products slightly cheaper for women. Primarily, this type of tax can be found in cosmetics, clothing, haircuts, dry cleaning and more.
The pink tax has become a concern for women around the world. With more effort than most men to succeed, it is already difficult to be a woman in this world. Moreover, it does not matter what field you work in. There is also a difference between the items payable. The fact is that if he could have saved the same amount of money, there is definitely something to fight for.
In Anushka Rathore’s Instagram video, she talks about the Pink Tax and why there is injustice on all women in the world. Most women are not aware of this phenomenon.
There is no legality around it. However, it is gender-biased as shopping-choices are made more or less by women.
What do you think about this unjust practice?
