Quote of the day: Lauren Jackson, Australian basketball superstar

”It’s time that we start being remunerated in a way that represents how important we are on the world stage. There’s a huge sacrifice for women in sport. When you are performing on the world stage and you are the best in the world, you should be treated that way.”

– Lauren Jackson, a former MVP in the Women’s National Basketball Association and the most famous female basketball player in Australia, on the strike by the Australian women’s soccer team. She was quoted by Fox Sports.
