Yes. And here's why.


The men and women do the same job under the same working conditions. Now, if the women pulled in less revenue from all sources including sponsorships I'd maybe say they don't have much of an argument, but that's not true. The women actually pull in more revenue from ticket and merchandise sales than the men's team did but that's probably because the men's team didn't make the last world cup (which actually is more fodder for the women's claim of unequal treatment since the women's team finished very well in the 2015 tournament). Sponsorships is another matter. I haven't found anything consistently saying the women attract approximately equal sponsorship money but that could be due to the organizations who do that contributing are run primarily by men.
