Hack #6 — Paying for Pink

Today, we focused in both large and small lecture on women’s movements. In small section specifically, there was much focus on the gender based wage gap in America today. (On average in California specifically, a woman only earn 84 cents for every dollar a man earns doing the same job.) When I was on my friend’s Tumblr account the other day, I noticed a post that struck me, because although we all know about the wage gap, I had no idea the difference in product pricing in stores. This phenomenon is often referred to as “The Pink Tax”.
