Equal pay for female footballers?

Unfortunately the argument against is usually dominated by mysoginists, which dampens the point somewhat, but why should the male game have higher prize money than the female game?

Women's World Cup: Fifa 'entrenched in chauvinism' over prize money, says Hope Solo

Until the standard increases (which it is doing at a rate which is alarming the people who wish to be over protectionist of the mens game,) it is barmy to suggest that female players should receive equal pay, but the argument for equal prize money is surely valid.
 
They don't deserve it.
Of course they do. The womens game will only improve toast similar skill level as the mens game when similar funds are put into the training and development of the players. The mens game is still light years ahead but they are moving forward in leaps and bounds.

Also, league football is barely followed but the world cup has a massive following.

There's no such thing as equal pay in football..

It doesn't generate as much money so can't possibly be same level of wages.
That's what it comes down to at domestic levels certainly. Do the England women get the same fee as the men do though? I'm not entirely sure how that works?
