Always a tough subject that was raised as a topic again at the BBC reporting on tennis.
Disproportional pay to male celebrities compared with their female counterparts is extraordinary. But the question is for me how can we justify paying them so much? They are worth their advertising dollar. Their dollar value is based purely on consumer take-up of endorsed products, either directly or through TV rights.
Create equality for everyone and this will/may change.
Education and equality for everyone, is far more important than increasing or evening out celebrity earnings.
I have rarely if ever seen any suggestion that the celebrity male earnings should be reduced down to those of the female celebs. Or spread evenly.
Think about it.
