If this issue had arisen in the 1950’s – when the earnings expectations were that the husband would earn ENOUGH TO SUPPORT A FAMILY, then the gyno-bashers would have that point at least.

But now, when every isolated individual in the society is expected to earn his/her OWN rent etc, This is nowhere near enough pay, for the BETTER THAN MEN players in the women’s teams.

Time to pass the Equal Rights Amendment.

  1. The women chose to use a different union than the men. Therefore, the contracts are different.
  • Use the same union, get the same contract - DUH
  1. The corporation is following the contract that the women agreed to, and as required by law.
  2. The women are actually paid MORE than the men, and get more benefits than the men. So what’s the problem again?

You already have the same opportunities as everyone else. What was your point?
