Inside this rough-textured resin sculpture shows two disposable razors, “women’s” and “mens” sitting on top of each other. The “pink tax” otherwise known as the “gender price gap” ranges across a whole range of gender based price differences generally recognised by the colour choices. Gender inequality stems back over time in various inconspicuous and obvious ways, it is a tragedy that womxn have historically been paid less, asked to do more and breed - on top of paying more for “womens" products. The pink tax affects clothes, toys, personal care products and even senior health products.
