Students Kristina Samsonova and Mariah Kline raise awareness on the wage gap between men and women by implementing a 21% Man Tax.

With a 21% gender wage gap, students Kristina Samsonova and Mariah Kline have raised awareness by their idea of implementing a 21% Man Tax.

The Man Tax would mean that men will be charged 21% more when purchasing from certain companies, including Starbucks Coffee, on International Women’s Day.

The extra money raised will then be donated to the American Association of University Women and their fight for fair pay.

This is one of many great pieces of student work from the Miami Ad School. Watch the video for more!
