3. Eat Ice Cream
The Tipsy Scoop Ice Cream Barlour is fighting the gender wage gap with liquor infused ice cream. On Thursday, March 8, International Women’s Day, the first 50 women to visit the “barlour” will get 80 cent scoops of ice-cream, while men will have to pay the full price of $4.90. Tipsy founder, Melissa Tavss, told amNewYork that she wanted to draw attention to the 20% wage gap between men and women and offer her female clientele an extra treat. According to the New York City Department of Small Business Services, men own 1.5 times the number of businesses as women in New York City, but the number of female entrepreneurs, like Melissa Tavss, is growing and their business are generating billions in sales.
This Thursday, raise a scoop of vanilla bean bourbon or strawberry white sangria sorbet for all the lady bosses and give your patronage to small businesses owned by women!You must be 21 or older and show valid I.D. in order to purchase the discounted ice cream.
