Should women have equal prize money as men in sports?

  • Women should get paid the same amount as men

    I say this because WHERE IN THE BIBLE does it say that God created man and women so that they don't be equal. IN WHAT LAW DOES IT STATE that men are more athletic than women. And if it says so please show it to EYERYONE since you think your JESUS!

  • Yes they should

    They are hard workers, and they have worked so hard to gain equal rights. They are very dedicated to their sports. Also, god created them equal, so why would woman and men not have equal pay. Low earnings can make it hard for woman to take care of their families, and their salart is lower in buisness. Woman don't bring in the crowds, but they work as hard as men. They don't play the same amounts of games but they don't get payed the same amount as men per game.

  • They do deserve equal prize money

    Because they are just as good as men and play the same amount as games and time during the games. In some cases they are even better then men
    LOL JOKES they should stay in the kitchen and cook me some din din, wash the dishes and clean the house

  • They work as hard men

    Yes, women should have equal pay in sports. For so many years women have been fighting for women's rights so why should they be any different in sports especially in society today. They work as hard as men and are dedicated to their sports. Organisers don't just look down on women's pay they look down on women themselves. This must be corrected! I feel even more strongly towards this point after Novak Djokavic made the point 'Why should women be paid more when they don't have as much specators as men' conteracting this point Serina Williams stated 'last year the womens final at the US open sold well before men.'

  • Women should get paid the same amount

    I think this because women play the same sport and the work just as hard to get where the men are. They drink the same drinks the eat the same foods they play the same sport they should get the same amount of money as men no matter what there gender is or how many people they bring into the stands every game.

  • Women shouldn't play sports

    Women's sports suck, women are things, men are superior athletically. Should just stick to the kitchen and pumping out babies and opening up there legs, the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the the

  • They shouldn't Get Paid The Same

    I believe they shoudnt get paid the same because men do more games then girls. If women did equal the same amount of men, then they should be paid the same amount of prize money. In tennis men usually get more crowd then girls, but it depends who is playing. For example other sports like cricket (T20) men get way more people then girls.

  • They don't do the same amount of games

    They don't do the same amount of games as men for example in tennis they do less matches then men a another example is weightlifting they don't even lift the same amount of weight as men so women shouldn't get the same amount of prize money as men because they don't do the same amount as MEN

  • They don't do the same amount of games

  • Equal pay needs to be earned

    People on the yes side are using the argument that women should be paid the same for doing the same job as men. But they're not doing that. The job is not simply playing the sport - it's to bring money in to the sponsors and advertisers who support the events and put up the prize money. Until / unless women in sport can enthuse the public sufficiently to get equal viewing figures, they should not be paid the same. And I'm a woman!

  • Market should dictate

    The market should dictate...If the wnba outgrossed the NBA then by all means the pay should reflect that. The fact is, women are not as physically gifted (This is science not speculation) and the abilities of the women to perform in sport suffers. For example, 1-3 women in the wnba history can dunk (with a smaller ball may i add) while every single player above 6'0 in the NBA (And many below that height) dunk. But someone above used nascar as an example, if danica patrick wins a race then the prize money should of course NOT be adjusted because of sex.

  • Get What You Deserve

    I do not believe women should have equal prize money as men in sports, UNLESS they are competing in the same franchise as the men (like in NASCAR). So if a woman race car driver wins, the prize money should not go down just because a woman won the event. However, if you are looking at something like the NBA versus the WNBA it follows that the WNBA does not make as much money as a franchise and the women players should not be paid as much as their male counterparts in the NBA.

  • No, the market should decide.

    No, women should not have equal prize money as men in sports, because that is not always commercially viable for the producers and investors in the sports. Those who fund the sports can only pay the athletes as much as the market will bear. If the women's sport is more popular it should pay more. If it is less popular than the men, it should pay less.

  • Profitability must decide; otherwise it's discrimination and favoritism

    3rd division football players work just as hard as 1st division football players. Should they get equal pay? Do you ever watch 3rd division games, Or pay for their merchandise, Or pay several thousands for season tickets? It's simple market dynamics that decide. Men are better at sports than women on average. People want to watch the best in everything, Not second or 3rd best. What you are suggesting here is a slippery slope to full-on communism, Which in itself is not wrong per se, But call it what it is rather than pretend it's sexist to pay men more, When men make more money for the business.

    What this whole concept around "they work just as hard as men so they deserve the same" people seem to be arguing for is not women's rights, But women's privilege over men. Giving equal pay for less result (% pay vs. Revenue generated would be much much higher for women if what you suggest happens) is discriminatory and simply a bad business decision. I work just as hard, If not harder, Than top CEOs (I work 100+ hours per week in investment banking). Do I deserve the same pay? No, Because I bring in much less revenue than the CEOs and the market deems my abilities in the space to be much less desirable/valuable.

    If you want to support this movement, Then why not watch and pay for women's sports as religiously as people watch and pay for men's sports? If you and all other proponents of this movement do so, Then markets will shift the pay accordingly based on the demand you have now equalised. Simple.
