Marto Lets Rip On Women’s Sporting Pay Gap

The Australian Diamonds have won Netball World Cup in South Africa, however, despite their championship title, the team won’t be walking away with a single cent.

Meanwhile, the Matildas would have been paid $44,000 each for just participating in the FIFA Women’s World Cup – even if they were kicked out in the first round.

Former Wallabies Rugby Union fullback and Triple M’s Breakfast with Marto, Margaux and Dan host ‘Marto’ says he’s still shocked by the glaring pay disparity difference in sports, reflecting on when he represented the Wallabies in the Rugby Union World Cup.
