Washington high schoolers propose gender-pricing ban

High school students have documented a number of items, from vitamins to adult diapers, where the female version is more expensive than the men’s version.

OLYMPIA, Wash. – What was originally a disappointment has now become part of the law.

Retailers won’t be able to sell products or services at different prices based on someone’s gender if the product is “essentially the same,” according to a bill proposed in Olympia.

Students from Lake Washington High School’s AP government class submitted the idea to State Senator Manka Dhingra, D-Redmond.

Dhingra is the main sponsor of the bill. The legislation had its first public hearing on Monday.

“Fairness is very important,” said Abi J also, senior at Lake Washington High School.

She and her classmates visited a grocery store in Kirkland and documented a number of items, from vitamins to adult diapers, where the female version was more expensive than the men’s version.

Instead of complaining, the students decided to do something about it.

Lake Washington senior Bree Heuer said: “Our group is mostly female so we thought it was meaningful to support and we’re really passionate about it.

Huer and J are also underage to vote but hope to testify in favor of the legislation as it passes the House and state Senate.

“It doesn’t matter how old you are. “If you’re passionate about an issue, you can make an impact,” Heuer said. AP government in his high school.”
