‘Ms. Monopoly’ Tips The Scales For Women In Attempt At Feminism

In Hasbro’s latest iteration of Monopoly, you’ll collect $240 when you pass ‘Go,’ but not if you’re a man.

Aiming to celebrate women trailblazers who have conquered the odds to achieve success, the game will virtually turn the wage gap on its head and pay female players more than their male competitors.

The toymaker announced on Tuesday the launch of Ms. Monopoly, which is set to hit the shelves this month, calling the new rule “a fun spin in the game that creates a world where women have an advantage often enjoyed by men.”

“However, if men play their cards right, they can make more money too,” the company added in its press release.

Properties in the game will be replaced by women-created innovations.

Now, “instead of building houses, you build business headquarters,” it said. “From inventions like WiFi to chocolate chip cookies, solar heating and modern shapewear, Ms. Monopoly celebrates everything from scientific advancements to everyday accessories ― all created by women.”
