LETTER: Column on equal pay for female soccer players missed the point

Martha Muzychka’s column regarding equal pay for female soccer players demonstrates the self-seeking, irrational brand of First World feminism that is mind-boggling.

Equal pay for equal work or accomplishment? Absolutely — be they doctors, lawyers, police officers, journalists or truck drivers.

But these women could not beat a half-decent team of 14-year-old boys, let alone the world’s best adults. As in ice hockey, the skills, speed and power of the top men in the world are totally lacking.

When they can play and draw crowds and sponsors like Messi and Mbappe then they can command their level of financial compensation.
