By the age of 30, the average woman is charged $40,000 because of the Pink Tax. European Wax Center is joining forces with the community of Miami in generating awareness to #AxElPinkTax throughout the month of April. The Pink Tax is the extra $1,351 that the average woman is charged every year for everyday products and services… just because it is for women!

With their efforts to bring these extra costs to light, Miami based artist Claudia La Bianca created a mural in Wynwood showcasing a set of pink and blue wings, with a price disparity, highlighting the price differences in men’s and women’s products to create must-share moments for the community. To put their money where their mouth is, European Wax Center will be paying the female artist $1,351 more than quoted, paying back an average year’s worth of The Pink Tax.

10 Days of Connection is a community-led initiative to promote kindness and inclusion in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. From May 1-10, participants are invited to attend connection experiences hosted by more than 100 local organizations, and are challenged to step outside of their comfort zone to forge new connections across lines of difference.

In recent years, people have become increasingly divided across lines of difference. Incidents of hate have increased, and tolerance for differing ideas has decreased. For ten days each year, we challenge the entire community to break down silos and engage in acts of connection, to build empathy, to increase understanding, and to refocus on our shared humanity.

Join in! Our community will be stronger when we all commit to focusing on what unites us instead of what divides us. A full calendar of events is available at http://bit.ly/ConnectionEvents2019.

Join the conversation by following @ConnectMiami on Facebook, @10dofc on Twitter and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #10DaysOfConnection to share your experience. Learn more at.

With a sense of humor and intense physical imagery, Macho Man XXI tackles the effects of gender violence taking place in the chaotic, surreal and exotic culture of Mexico. In riveting and craftily gender-coded dance, the powerful and daring work pulls up fear by its roots, revealing the submissive and perverted state of this social legacy.
