Despite the fact that women have been able to access sports in growing numbers during the past few decades, only a few women have managed to access and hold senior leadership positions in the world of sports.
Even though changing, the landscape in female sports is still characterized by a number of gender inequality issues including limited professional opportunities in sports, the gender pay gap, and many more.
This month, the Money Smart Athlete team aims to address the issues faced by women athletes and offer insight and guidance on handling them as best as possible. We envision a sports industry where women athletes are given a fair chance and we want to empower women athletes to use their voices in the ongoing battle of the gender pay gap, their continuous objectification, and their inequitable media coverage. Our ultimate goal is to see women athletes equipped with the tools which will eventually allow them to achieve true equality in sports!
