This bill would require prize compensation offered at competitive events to be identical between the gendered categories at each participant level that are held on state property.

Position Statement

The reality is that income inequity exists for women in the work place. Reported by the California Budget Center, women’s to men’s medium earning for individuals at full time employment from 2010-2014 in California was 85.4%. Equal pay for athletes is a real issue when addressing pay equity. All Californians should feel welcome in parks and outdoor spaces. Addressing pay inequitiies for women would help welcome women and girls in outdoor park competitions and equal prizes is vital to this.
