We are constantly told (mainly by blokes on Facebook) that female athletes are paid less than men because they generate less money, right? But will this not always be the case until women's sport is marketed properly, you know like what they have done for men's sport?
I thought the main issue in women's sports was equal pay. But no, it's not. content media

Hi, my name is Trae McGovern, the Founder of The Australian Sportswoman. I'm a former elite athlete, capped 102 by Football Federation Australia as a member of The Australian Women's Football team, the Matildas. I've since gone on to play Rugby League for QLD and compete in sprint and olympic distant Triathlons and half ironman's before retiring from competition due to an injury. Whilst I still keep myself fit, strong and healthy, I have also kept myself within sport as a junior Football Coach and an Athlete Well-Being Counsellor for young aspiring athletes. My aim with The Australian Sportswoman's social media platforms and website is to PROMOTE our Australian Female athletes and sports teams, SUPPORT the fans by centralising event information, providing resources on athletes and creating discussions, and INSPIRE the next generation of Sportswomen.
