Brazil Women Footballers To Receive Equal Pay As Senior Men’s Team

Brazil has taken a major step to promote gender equality. Brazil’s football federation has decided to award equal pay to both women’s and the men’s team.

President Rogerio Caboclo of the country’s federation said that this move is one step forward to level the playing field between both teams.

The new decision means female stars like Marta, Formiga and Leticia will receive the same pay as a superstar Neymar. After this decision, Brazil’s female footballers and male footballers will receive the same pay and allowances.

Brazil has followed the steps of New Zealand, Norway, and Australia that took this decision to remove gender inequality. The equal pay decision will be applied in the Olympics next year as well as in the next World Cup tournaments.

US women’s team & the current champions sued their federation in March 2019 for not paying equal amounts to the male & female teams. The judge dismissed their case but they again appealed.

The gap in men and women players in football is huge not only in Brazil but all around the world. The highest-paid female players earn six-figure salaries. While male players such as Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus receive pay more than 100 times greater.
