Within industries ranging from the corporate one to the sports one, men earn, in most cases, higher wages than women.
Novak Djokovic, Tennis‘ world number one, stated that men deserve to get paid more than women in his sport. This has sparked a reaction from women’s best player Serena Williams who then slammed Djokovic for his comments.
This pay gap has, over the years, also provoked angry reactions from women in general, reflected by movements led by the feminist society in order to curb that gap.
