Gender Wage Gap in Professional Sports

Guild Recruitment
blankcity: Guild Recruitment - Gender Wage Gap in Professional Sports  image 1

On average, women in the workplace are paid only three-quarters of every dollar of their male counterparts (Corrigall-Brown, 2016). The gender pay gap exists beyond salaries and into bonuses and profit sharing (CBC News, 2019).

    There is also a gap in how much coverage, attendance, viewership, etc. in these sports. The biggest exception is women’s tennis which is pretty close to on par with men’s tennis and correspondingly the pay gap is less. Here in Atlanta, the WNBA team moved into an arena near the airport (that most people probably aren’t even aware of) that is a third of the size of State Farm Arena where the Hawks play. While I don’t dispute the accuracy of these numbers, I think they need context lest they deliver the wrong message that there is some sort of inequity in the pay gap.
