This satirical tip app is designed to make people re-consider their stance on women's rights. The Toothpick app is a tip calculator for your smartphone that encourages you to tip women less. The app's site notes society says men and women are not equal, especially when it comes to the gap in pay. In the United States women are paid 22% less (on average) than their male counterparts. In this vein, the tip app helps you determine a tip for a woman that is 22% less.

Truly believing all people should be tipped equally, the team behind the Toothpick app encourages people to take a stand for gender equality by signing their petition. Those who believe women and men should be treated equally under law can sign their awareness-raising petition to pass the Equal Rights Amendment.
