Seems to me you are going to need to define your terms. Sex equality in sports could mean men playing women in the same tournament. In that case, no women would be able to make a living.
On the other hand, in tennis, big tournaments have been guilted into paying women the same amount as the men. I have my suspicions that ATP tennis draws more fans ($s) than WTA tennis, but I haven't seen the numbers. When it comes to sports participation, there's no question that men are more interested in sports than women.
