A blow against businesses that discriminate against women.
California’s state Senate is supporting legislation to prohibit manufacturers of razors, toys and other products from charging more for items – simply because they’re pink.

The news follows reports that products marketed to women and girls are often sold at higher prices – than similar products marketed to men and boys.

The bill would allow consumers to file discrimination lawsuits – against companies that violate the ban on gender-based pricing.

The Senate passed the bill in a 22-12 vote, with only Democrats backing it.

 It now heads to the California Assembly.
