The arena of women soccer is not an exclusion. As a simple consideration, we can count David Beckham while being paid millions of dollars a year, the women in this list only earn thousands of dollars a year for the same career in soccer. And this fact is still true when considering additional money from corporate sponsorships. Famous male soccer players earn millions of dollars more than their female counterparts in soccer cleats endorsement deals.
But of course, there is something more than archetype of sexism. As a matter of fact, we all know, women’s sports aren’t watched by as many people as the male version. Some even may argue that women aren’t taught to stick up for themselves during salary negotiations.
Whatever the reasons, we are trying here to build up a short list of 10 highest paid female soccer players in 2015.
