“Women’s Tax” Explains Why Our Razors Cost More Than Men’s

Let the inequality begin. Or continue, rather. A 1995 study in California found that women annually paid $1,351 more than men when purchasing similar products, such as razors and deodorant, that are packaged and marketed differently to each gender. 20 years later, The Daily Share re-researchedthe topic, and found that this pricing discrimination still exists. Not cool.

Here are a few of their findings:

MEN: Schick Hydro 5 Razor: $8.56
WOMEN: Schick Hydro Silk Razor: $9.97

MEN: Neutrogena Age Men’s Age Fighter Face Moisurizer: $10.35/oz
WOMEN: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream: $11.32/oz

National average price for a men’s haircut: $28
National average price for a women’s haircut $44

Let’s give a round of applause for California, though…they’re currently the only state that has banned gender discrimination in pricing. Follow the link below to watch the Daily Share’s full video.
