Whether you're AFL, football, union, league, tennis, golf, surfing or professional curling, the recent Matildas equal pay decision is a landmark moment for pay equality in sport. But to a lot of people, it seems completely unjustified. Here's what you should tell them.
10. PAY IS JUST A SMALL, BUT CRUCIAL STEP ON THE ROAD TO EQUALITY
Ultimately, your take-home bank balance is a small part of the argument for 'equal pay'.
As this deal showed, all the other issues that are forced into the discussion by raising the idea of equal pay are equally important.
These are factors like parental leave, access to physios and training equipment, childcare and can we repeat, shelling out for a business class ticket, c'mon, that far fewer people would contest, because they should be basic entitlements for any elite athlete.
Yet they're not.
So finally, when you're explaining to somebody the merits of giving equal pay to women's sport, explain that it makes economic sense.
Explain that's it's a better investment, that these wages are a tiny fraction of the organisations who make huge profits, that it's all based on a team's performance anyway and that it's greater for sport and society as a whole.
But if after all of that, they're still arguing, then explain that as long as we're still allowing big businesses to pay your mother, sister or daughter less for doing exactly the same job, we're still encouraging a culture where they're more likely to be overlooked, ignored, sexually harassed or even assaulted.
Equality is coming and you don't want to be on the wrong side of history when it gets here.
