Thirty-four years after Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in the "Battle of the Sexes," Wimbledon bowed to public pressure on its unequal prizes between men and women.
some comments on this i've read say that it's not fair… women don't earn that equal pay since they don't bring in the same crowds as the men, they don't play as long as the men, they aren't as….insert your weird excuse, as the men. seems like serena williams sure brings in the crowds… and the men who've whined over this issue dare to put their letters after their name! as if being educated qualifies them for such an opinion of entitlement.
i still don't get how some educated men don't support equal pay. don't they have daughters/sisters/wives/friends who deserve the dignity? Especially when one considers that many women take time off in their careers to be caregivers and their overall income suffers as a consequence, regardless if they have children.
