MSNBC | Everyone pays the ‘pink tax’ — whether you know it or not
Sep 8, 2022
Just because you don’t buy jasmine breeze deodorant or BIC women’s razors doesn’t mean you don’t pay the “pink tax.” When most people hear this term, they think about the price differences between gendered items, such as a blue toiletry kit and a pink one.
What they don’t think about are the various manifestations of the “pink tax” and how it impacts everyone, not only women. Because that’s the thing about gender inequity. It’s not a “me” problem, it’s a “we” problem. One that’s exacerbated during this period of record inflation.
