You yourself answered your own question. If this sport is far from being as popular and visited as the traditional one, it will earn less on advertising contracts, which means that the stars of this federation will receive less.

The conclusion is this: women should not earn less in football, but they will receive less until their sport becomes as popular as men's.

In this situation, the answer is simple - no, they shouldn't. The situation itself and the system itself must be reviewed. Artificially raising salaries will only cause discontent in society and rejection by sports structures, but will not fix the problem of women's sports.
Women's football was quite a popular sport, which began to be actively stifled in the 1920s, first in Great Britain and then around the world, as Britain set the tone for football. One can argue for a long time why: there is a version that for the sake of male football players who have lost spectators, there is a version that because of politics, since popular female football players were a mouthpiece for their husbands, who went on strike in a number of working specialties.
So, of course, let the "market" decide everything, but the "market" owes a favor to women's football, let it pay off, and then it will begin to decide.

By itself, a separate women's classification usually means a lower sports group (as well as the ranking among juniors, among employees of the enterprise, etc.).

No, they shouldn't. And yes, Anna Andreeva is right, the question itself already has an answer. FIFA is not a charitable organization. It realizes its broadcasting rights by selling broadcasting rights to major companies. Those, in turn, place ads, also receive income. So, the advertiser is not very interested in women's football. The potential audience is more male, and the guy is more interested in watching the conditional “Liverpool” than the US team. Therefore, the income from the sale of broadcasting rights and the income from advertising in women's football is several times, if not ten times less. Why should there be the same salaries? This is no longer justice, it is leveling under the guise of anti-discrimination slogans. Racket in the "interests of the revolution." Will women's football be as popular as men's, then for God's sake. Tennis players don't complain too much.

The very fact that the question was asked anonymously hints that the author guesses that this is a fat throw. He even answered his own question, putting the answer into the wording.

Is there anything to discuss here? Too thick to waste time. Let's not feed the troll by diverting information noise away from real cases of economic discrimination against women.
