He Pink Tax or Pink Tax it is not actually a tax, but a discriminatory pricing system on products and services that is based on gender. This concept was born in 1992 in the US by the Department of Consumer Affairs, with the purpose of creating awareness of the unjustified difference that women pay for some products.

“In Argentina, without the need for intervention in the market by the State or any bill to regulate the offer, through these reports it has been possible to highlight the difference in prices that women pay compared to men for the same products. . In turn, in each measurement we have detected a decrease in the price gap compared to previous years. However, the categories that still need to be improved are perfumes and razors, where national products have a much smaller gap than imported ones in the surveyed categories”, expressed Damián Di Pace of Focus Market Consulting.


Participation of women in entrepreneurship

“The gender economy and its gap with respect to men in Argentina has a very good position worldwide with position 33 within the 146 countries surveyed by the World Economic Forum. Women in our country stand out for their access to health, educational training, and leadership and intervention in the field of politics and business. For its part, according to FECOBA, they still require better access to financing to carry out their ventures. Two out of 10 women require access to more lax interest rates to start their activities,” said the analyst.

“In recent years there has been a growth in the participation of women in the entrepreneurship sector. According to the Indicator of Women’s Participation in SMEs (IPAMUP), prepared by the sector of Women Entrepreneurs of the Argentine Confederation of Medium Enterprises, last year it has grown one point, representing 42.9% of the total. In turn, 11% of the country’s industrial companies are run solely by women, compared to 59.3% that are run by men, and 27.1% by members of both genders. While in Commerce, 25.7% are owned by women, ”he concluded.
