Women have to pay a lot more stores than men almost the same things. A new study The Times newspaper Britain found that many products women cost to twice as much as similar products men. Researchers looked hundreds of goods in the UK's biggest shops. They found that women's clothes and beauty products and girls' toys were average 36 per cent more expensive than products for men and boys. One store charged over $7 more a pink scooter aimed girls than a black one. Another store charged double the price ten razors simply because they were pink. Researchers said Levi's 501 jeans for women are average 46 per cent more expensive than those for men.

The Times called this "sexist" pricing. Other people have called it a "gender tax". Maria Miller, the chairwoman the British government's women and equalities committee, called it a "rip-off". She said she would ask Britain's government to look this to see if there was price discrimination. Britain's Financial Times (FT) newspaper said: "Perhaps women tend to be busier and have less time to shop around. Or perhaps they care more quality when it comes deodorant or shampoo, whereas men just want something cheap." However, the FT said men paid more some things and questioned why the journalists did not look the price differences things that appeal more to men.
