SINK THE PINK

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The News -

We hate to break it to you, but it’s true— women do pay more than men when shop­ping. In a re­cent study, some of our favourite de­sign­ers have been found guilty of charg­ing women more for sim­i­lar pieces of cloth­ing in male ver­sions. Known as the pink tax, the high­est known of­fender is Saint Lau­rent, with the most price dif­fer­en­tials. For ex­am­ple, a black-and-white Bre­ton sweater costs USD1,350 for women but a con­trast­ing USD990 for men. Gen­der in­equal­ity? You be the judge.
