#Income Inequality: World Cup Edition: FIFA pays Men $32 million while Women get $2 million: I Guess that $30 Million difference was out on Bribes

Well if you want the true meaning if income inequality FIFA has everyone beat.
The U.S.-Japan World Cup final set ratings records for Fox Sports and drew worldwide attention to the women’s game, but the champions will go home with $2 million, which is $33 million less in prize money than Germany did when they won the last men’s world cup according to the BBC. 
I guess FIFA doesn't make nearly the same amount of money on the women's game as the men's but they did rake in $4.8 billion on their last World Cup.
