Women pay more for things than men. Many things for women cost twice as much as those for men. A newspaper said women's clothes and beauty products are 36 per cent more expensive than those for men. One store charged double the price for pink razors. Women's Levi 501 jeans were 46 per cent more expensive than men's.

This is "sexist" pricing. A spokeswoman for the British government called it a "rip-off". A newspaper said women could be busier and have less time to go shopping. They might care more than men about quality. Men do pay more for some things. The newspaper did not look at things men like to buy.
