At the beginning of the class, the teacher asked the class which industries might have the issue of gender inequality, and then further explain the phenomena with samples in the class material.
In the U.S., the sports industry is one of the industries with serious gender inequality. Women are paid much less than men are paid. According to a report, 40% of women in the sports industry have experienced gender discrimination. Take World Cup as an example, the US women football team got 2 million bonuses for their golden medal, whereas US men football team received 35 million after they won the championship. Apparently, the gender pay gap was extremely huge. The good news is, the remuneration for women is rising every year, there are over 90% of the sport games pay men and women equally. "Women are far more visible in sports today than at any previous point in history," says UN Women in a statement. Hopefully, the issue of gender inequality will finally diminish.
Besides the contents from the magazine, the teacher also showed the class some related videos, which could further enhance students' listening and speaking.
