The iconic Monopoly board game is getting a feminist update for 2019…
Hasbro’s newest version of the game, dubbed “Ms. Monopoly,” will pay female players more than males – a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the gender pay gap in America…
In Ms. Monopoly, women will receive $240 when they pass “go,” whereas men will only receive the usual $200.
Additionally, women will receive $1900 at the beginning of the game instead of $1500, according to USA Today.
On the game box, the classic Rich Uncle Pennybags character is replaced by his “niece” Ms. Monopoly, ready to break the glass ceiling with her gray blazer and cup of coffee.
At the bottom, the slogan reads, “The first game where women make more than men.”
Ms. Monopoly is available for pre-order yesterday September 10.
