This year's Wimbledon lady champ will earn the same payday as her male counterpart, breaking a ~120 year tradition of inequality for women. It's about time.
I wrote about this topic after last summer's tournament when the women's finale proved infinitely more dramatic and exciting than the men's. The way I figured, it's 2007 already. As a matter of principle, equal pay is just a no brainer.
