Gender Discrimination in Body Building (Part 2) :

The other claim dominating modern criticism of discrimination in body building is surprisingly the money. The money granted, generated and expended to sponsor body building careers, has become very strained. The world economy doesn't favor body building right now. A recent forum for female body builders in the US ended on a high note after holding a press conference too state their stand. In the press conference, their spokesperson said that there is limited sponsorship for women body builders.

Yet for those few who benefit, little is given in reward. Female body builders are being given prize money sums that are only a quarter or even less of the sums given to the male body builders. To show the truth of their claim, the spokesperson quoted the 2005 Olympia where men competed for the prize of $550,000 in total, while women had to compete for only a total of $71,000.



Having followed the above discussion, it is possible to reach a personal conviction. These claims have been made by presumptuously biased women activist on behalf of female body builders. It is of course natural to dismiss the claims as propaganda. That is what has happened in the last decade and a half. But if one looks through and into these claims, there is a point that the women are making. Female body builders work very hard to be champions, they make thousands of sacrifices and they have the right to call for equal treatment by the industry. The above claims are as true as truth is.

The objective status review of body building will truly reveal, as discussed above, that there is gender discrimination annexed right in the heart of the industry and the blunt of it is borne by women body builders and perpetrated by the males. That is the truth. Simple.
