Today women are not just playing sports. People are paying attention. In 2015, the Women's College World Series drew more television viewers than the Men's College World Series. In 2017, more than 3.8 million tuned in for the NCAA Women’s Basketball National Championship. There is even evidence that — like men — women are exploited by college sports. So there is enough revenue that some women are actually underpaid by the schools that employ them to play sports.
