Women are still subject to a so-called pink tax, forcing them to pay more than their male counterparts for comparable everyday products. This has negative consequences for the economic position of women, who also earn less on average. A study in the US found out that women could spend up to $1,400 a year more than men because of these price differences.

Samira Rafaela has posed questions to the European Commission asking them to remedy the unfair price discrimination against women and girls. You can find the questions here: WPQ Pink Tax .
