I welcome SRFIs decision to have the same prize money for men and women.The matter of women demanding equal wages is not only confined to squash. They are paid the same as men in all four tennis grand slam events but significantly less on the WTA circuit.PSA, the professional body for squash, has recently made a conscious decision to have equal prize money. The World Series Finals in Dubai last month had equal prize money of $160,000 each.?Joshna Chinappa, a 14-time nationals winner, too welcomed SRFIs move.
