Why women don't make on the Forbes 100 Athletes List
No sportswomen features in the Forbes 100 Highest Paid Athletes
And we aren't even surprised
In 2017, Serena Williams was the only featured female athlete
But she took a break during her pregnancy...
...& didn't make the list this year
This rekindles the question of equal pay in sports for both men & women
Novak Djokovic argued men should get paid more in tennis in 2017...
...as they attract better crowds & ads for the tournament
But that isn't entirely true
Serena Williams has earned $81.7 million in prize money by winning 39 grand slam titles
While Djokovic has $108.8 million in 12 grand slam titles
Virat Kohli is the 15th highest paid athlete in terms of endorsement
With fewer endorsements how are women in sports suppose to get visibility?
