Tackling the Pay Gap in Women’s Sport
This summer, you can catch more female sport on your screens than ever before. Netball’s Fast 5 series aired in prime time over the weekend, and in recent days the W-League announced its upcoming season has been picked up by American broadcaster ESPN. Our women’s cricketers are also gearing up for the Big Bash League, which will see a stand-alone women’s match broadcast on a primary channel of a commercial free-to-air network for the first time.
But even with eyes on the screen and bums on seats, our female athletes are still fighting for professionalism. Our producer, Lucy Rayner, took a look at what’s being done and what’s still left to do in the fight for gender equality in sport.
