A recent survey has reportedly revealed that more than a third of women currently working in football believe that they are paid less than their male counterparts.
The survey conducted by Women in Football, which questioned more than 650 administrators, officials and coaches currently playing in football, reported that an astonishing 28 percent of respondents said that they have witnessed female employees being treated unfairly within their particular organisation.
According to the Mirror, it seems that sexism and discrimination towards women in football remains a significant issue despite some progress in recent years, as successful women in football are still very much in the exception.
Reportedly, the current high-profile female figures in football include Sunderland's chief executive Margaret Byrne, vice-chair at West Ham United Karren Brady, Heather Rabbatts, who is on the main board of the FA amongst others, while all levels of competitive football are still dominated by men.
Although the senior women officials are few in number, but they could be used as a springboard for future female appointments, the report added. (ANI)
