As a group, Women are safer drivers than men, and enjoy a price advantage. Is this going to be addressed as well?
Also, there exist economic reasons why clothing for men is cheaper than clothing for women. Look at the difference in variety that exists in the women's departments of a major chain, and then compare it to the (lesser) variety in the men's department. That variety comes at a price, anything that doesn't sell is wasted, and is ultimately paid for by those articles (and their buyere) which do get purchased.
That variety also includes more different fabrics, and colors, and decorations. All of these things impact the ability of the dry-cleaning industry to process these articles, and generate more complaints and hassles for them. This too causes higher prices.
That being said, cotton pants are cotton pants, and wool blend suits are wool blend suits whether worn by a man or woman, and such articles should be priced the same, or since men tend to be larger than women, perhaps the men should pay a premium. (To be gender neutral on this, how about pay by size or weight?)
As for haircuts, that pricing differential is unjustified, unnecessary, and clearly discriminatory. I have seen some women come to a Barbershop for a haircut for that very reason. Gender specific treatments, like perms, coloring, and the like should be priced according to the actual cost of the procedure. Likewise beard and mustache trimming for men.
Let's try to be a little bit reasonable about how we approach this.
