Men and women should be paid the same if they are both at an equal job. Athletes should be paid the same way, women should not have to make less just because they are female. However, female athletes tend to get less attention than male athletes so many other factors come into play at that point.
While there is a sad but understandable division of pay between male and female athletes, prize money should be given equally. In professional sports pay is generally based on how much money the player brings in. If it is prize money, however, players have equally competed and winners should be equally paid.
