If there is far more work for women as models than men as models, then there should be more women models, but they shouldn't be paid more for the exact same work. You can pay someone more based on performance, experience, skill set, etc, but not race or gender. That is my clear statement.
This isn't the way the real world works.
The top female models bring an incredible economic benefit to their employers. They have every right to demand as much money as they can get. If a supermodel isn't paid her market value by her current sponsor, she has every right to go to that other sponsor who will.
Sponsors pay the top female supermodels because they are worth the price. The companies receive more value than they are paying out (even at the tens of millions they spend). There is not sponsor in the world who will pay that much for a male model (I think the top male is paid just $1.5 million).
- You can't ask companies to not pay market value for top female talent.
- You can't ask female supermodels to accept less than their market value.
- You can't ask companies to pay more for male talent than they get in economic benefits.
The economic realities mean that women will make significantly more than man in the modelling industry. Unless you come up with some scheme to take money from women and give it to men, I don't see any way to change this.
