The campaign for female athletes to earn the same as men
Several sporting greats have backed a campaign for men and women to be paid the same amount of taxpayer money in equivalent sports.

“What we are calling for in our campaign is for gender equality to be a condition of government funding, of grants and funding,” Sydney long-boarder Lucy Small, leader of the Equal Pay for Equal Play NSW campaign, said.
