I am interested in exploring issues of women and sports especially at the professional setting. At this level of competition money is the main objective. I will explore the financial battles many women have with the different athletic organizations that they belong to. These athletes like their male counterparts sacrifice their health to perform at their very best so that they can entertain their fans. Women deserve equal pay to men in their respective sport.
