Gender inequality and its effect on the financial independence of women

Even though steps have been made in the right direction, gender inequality is still prevalent and poses a great issue, especially in the world of sports. Despite the progress made over the years, income inequality and the gender pay gap between female and male athletes remains a cause for concern, affecting the level of financial independence of female athletes, as well as their ability to live a financially sustainable life.

Female athletes, childbearing, and motherhood responsibilities

According to public perception, it is common to think that there is a clash between motherhood and peak performance in elite sports. Top athletic performance requires such high levels of commitment and dedication to the sport which means that women often need to sacrifice family life, especially when taking into consideration that the window of fertility and peak performance tends to overlap. Unlike male athletes, female athletes are forced to decide about whether they will continue to train and perform in sports, take a step back to embrace motherhood or attempt to take on the major challenge of combining the two, given that the sports industry and society may not be their greatest supporters in this process.
