Are We Still Treating Women In Sport As Second Rate?
Over the weekend we saw a great game of State of Origin Football. Two great teams of athletes playing in a state rivalry that has everyone talking but despite the brilliant plays and the incredible individual and team performances the game I am referring to isn't the one you are thinking of.
The Women's State of Origin game had everything that the Men's Game and in my opinion was a better game to watch but it was sadly missing a few things that these athletes well and truly deserve starting with a major arena to play in like the Men get, a Prime Time scheduling like the Men get and Media coverage and promotion worthy of these players performances like the Men get.
Whilst some sports like Tennis lead the way in equality for Women in Sport, sadly many other sports make us ask Are We Still Treating Women In Sport As Second Rate?
