Is the Pink Tax Making Life More Expensive For You? Interivew with Andrew Carter from CJAD Montreal Radio

What is the 'Pink Tax'?

It’s the idea that women pay more for products than men: that pink and purple razors cost more than blue and black ones. 

Last December, the department of consumer affairs in New York City evaluated the costs of 800 products at two dozen retailers... and found that the cost of women’s products were seven per cent higher than similar products for men. 

I joined Andrew Carter earlier this week to discuss the fact that it's six times more expensive to be a woman.  Listen to the Soundcloud here - http://www.cjad.com/blog/andrew-carter/2016/03/03/andrew-is-the-pink-tax-making-life-more-expensive-for-you
