The indoor track and field season all builds up to this weekend for Indiana State— the Missouri Valley Conference Championships held at Northern Iowa.

Let’s say Hannah walks into the hygiene section of Wal-Mart. She’s on the hunt for a new razor because hers became dull. As she’s searching for a razor, she notices all the men’s razors are dark colors such as black and blue, while the women’s razors are pink and purple. She also notices the price difference between the “male” razors and “female” razors from the exact same brand. Why are mine more expensive?She asks herself. Well Hannah, it’s because of the Pink Tax. The Pink Tax is gender-based pricing that generally upcharges women’s products. It isn’t even necessarily a tax; it is charging women more simply because businesses can.
