Skip to comments.Hasbro celebrates women with 'Ms. Monopoly' game -- and pays them more than men
Posted on 09/10/2019 10:47:53 AM PDT by conservative98
Ms. Monopoly, as the new game is called, aims to celebrate women trailblazers and while Mr. Monopoly is a real-estate mogul, Ms. Monopoly (who is apparently Mr. Monopolys niece) is an advocate whose mission is to invest in female entrepreneurs, according to Hasbros release statement.
The toymaker also addresses real-world concerns over wage disparities between men and women, by disadvantaging male players in the game, saying Ms. Monopoly is the first-ever game where women make more than men.

MEET MS. MONOPOLY! Mr. Monopoly's niece, a self-made investment guru, is here to celebrate women trailblazers and update a few things. Its about time! pic.twitter.com/ETSBK7TtWj— Hasbro (@Hasbro) September 10, 2019
I dont remember women collecting less then the standard $200 for passing Go on the original game so why the $40 difference with Ms. Monopoly? Looks to me that there was more equality with the original.— GreekyGeek (@Dion78) September 10, 2019
Tbh I think it's pretty terrible that Hasbro thinks women aren't smart enough to spend their money wisely and need their help to be competitive.— Double A (@DoubleAUB) September 10, 2019
Ikr this is stupid and just makes people think feminism is bad. It's not, but its stuff like this that enforces that stereotype.— Akanksha Kaith 💗 (@AkankshaKaith) September 10, 2019
Wonder how well it will sell. Probably popular with radical feminists but maybe not so much with average women.
Men will probably not be playing it so that slices 50% out of their customer base. Not a good business option.
Identity Politics gone berserk.
And for an easier time at winning Monopoly.
That extra $40 is actually alimony...
*ducking now* ;-)
Get Woke, Go Broke.
I hope Hasbro has planned for the money they will lose on this debacle.
Can’t wait to see how much $$$ Hasbro loses over this endeavor....
“Not a good business option.”
They still have the standard edition. It probably cost next to nothing to put this together. So, they’ll get the feminazis to buy in and some limp wristed liberal men. Meanwhile, it signals how virtuous Hasbro is in their product offerings.
Not a huge downside, unfortunately.

Hilarious. Sorry but it just is.
Well, they'll sell at least one to single issue radical feminist NorDUH O'Donnell. If a story doesn't have a feminist angle or a TDS message, she won't air it.
Check out Ghettopoly.
This is an admission women can’t compete with men on an equal footing.
That is why the cartoon girl has a smirk on her face.
They know that they get a leg up on their competition.
This just shows how dangerous it is to have a single company producing the game “Monopoly”
