Prize money gap will close - Grant
- From the section Sport
Minister for Sport Helen Grant says women's sport needs more media coverage and commercial investment in order to bridge inequality between male and female prize money.
A BBC Sport study has revealed that 30% of sports - including golf, cricket and squash - pay prize money that rewards men more highly than women.
However, the Conservative MP believes parity will eventually be achieved, "when the full potential of women's sport is seen and realised".
