This video contains mostly pictures, but I decided to still post it because the handful of statistics in my opinion, are mind-blowing. Some of the information provided by this clip include the following;
--> Female NCAA athletes receive only 45% of college athletic scholarship dollars, which is $148 million less than male athletes.
--> Female college athletes receive only 38% of sports operating dollars which is $1.17 BILLION less than their male counter-sports.
--> As of 2002, only 15 NCAA Division 1 schools spend more on all women's sports teams combined than on football.
--> In 2001, women's sports passed the $1 billion mark in total sponsorship revenue, while men's sports sponsorship was at $25 billion.
These few blurbs are just glimpses at the severity of the gender inequality that still exists today. These facts don't even touch upon the countless other aspects of life like the work force, education, economy, etc. If something that typically begins as a hobby for many, but now more often can become a career is so unequal, how is it looking at all these other factors in life? How unequal is society still today?
