New Monopoly game empowers women

In the new Monopoly game, called Ms. Monopoly, female players are getting more money at the beginning of the game and also getting more money when they pass ‘go’ than male players. Fare? Not really. Necessary? Maybe…

Reversed Roles

“A fun new take on the game that creates a world where women have an advantage often enjoyed by men”, says Hasbro in a statement. But don’t worry, if men play their cards right, they can make more money too.”
But that is not the only twist of this female monopoly. Players van invest their money in inventions created by woman.

Female empowerment

Jen Boswinkel, the senior director of Hasbro Gaming, says that this game is specially made for kids so they can learn about inequality between women and men. “With all of the things surrounding female empowerment, it felt right to bring this to Monopoly in a fresh new way”, says Jen to USA Today. “It’s giving the topic some relevancy to everyone playing it that everybody gets a turn, and this time women get an advantage at the start.”
