What is the Pink Tax?

Women pay more than men 42% of the time for everyday products and services. Studies find that women make 80 cents compared to a man’s dollar, with women of color earning less than that. Reports also found that more than two thirds of the population in student debt, are women.


The Pink Tax does not only apply to care and luxury products, but it is also harmful to women’s overall financial goals, leading to higher mortgage amounts, interest rates, and more.
