Leading high street brands are charging women as much as 40% more for the same items of clothes as men.
A plain white t-shirt can cost up to £6 a more for a woman in shops like Gap, River Island and H&M.
Despite steps being made in the right direction for gender equality, it would seem that many major clothes retailers aren’t following suit!
Shocking isn't it?!
The worst offending shop is Gap, with a huge difference of £6 (over 40% more) between the two white t-shirts:
- £14.95 for women
- £8.95 for men
A huge ten of the sixteen brands assessed charge more for a woman's plain white t-shirt than men's. Two brands charge the same, and four charge more for men - although these all have a lower percentage price difference.
