Study Shows Women Pay More for Personal Care Products Than Men


Recent studies have revealed that women have pay more for personal care products than men do. For example, women suffering from hairloss pay 40 percent more for over-the-country hair growth products that men do. It showed that on average women pay $11.27 for hair regrowth products an men pay only $8.05. Neil Sadick, a New York City — based dermatologist, stated, “There is no good rationale as to why 2 percent versus 5 percent minoxidil products should be comparably priced… One would think it is either a marketing decision made by the pharmaceutical company, or a gender-related strategic decision.”

  • A Google Employee Spreadsheet Shows Pay Disparities Between Men & Women

    For the second time in three years, Google is finding itself in the news over an employee-generated spreadsheet. According to The New York Times, a spreadsheet the newspaper obtained shows that male employees at the company receive higher salaries and bonuses than women at nearly every level. Two years ago, Erica Baker, a former Google employee, posted a series of tweets detailing her creation of a transparent, salary-sharing spreadsheet at the company. Baker said this spreadsheet, which showed a gender gap among peer bonuses, was less than welcomed by the higher-ups at the company. The New York Times reports the spreadsheet they saw is the same one initially started by Baker, with up-to-date 2017 base salaries and bonuses. These figures appear to show women earning less than their male counterparts in five out of six pay levels at the company. It's important to note that the spreadsheet only contains information from 1,200 United States-based Google employees, so it is far from representative of the whole. While the Times' report isn't conclusive due to the small size of the data, scrutiny over pay gaps at Google is unlikely to go away anytime soon. The company will have a lot of convincing to do beyond simply saying it's not true.

  • After Weight-Loss Surgery, Women Fare Better Than Men In One Critical Area

    A new study suggests that women may have a lower risk of heart disease than men after weight-loss surgery. According to UPI, the study included nearly 2,000 patients whose risk for heart disease was assessed in the decade before their surgery and one year after the procedure. All patients had a significant reduction in their heart disease risk after weight-loss--or bariatric--surgery. But researchers reported women had a 41 percent reduced risk while men had a 35.6 percent reduced risk. That's a roughly 20 percent difference. Lead study author Dr. John Morton is director of bariatric surgery at Stanford Health Care in Palo Alto, Calif. Dr. Morton said, "This study shows there is a gender disparity in cardiac outcomes for patients undergoing bariatric surgery."
