In his tweet, Ohanian drew attention to the continuing dominance and recognition of female athletes and how they are consistently getting more views. He urges fans to look up to other athletes like Tom Brady and the Mahomes family who are investors in women’s sports.“Ask yourself, why is Brady an investor in the Vegas Aces? Why is the Mahomes family invested in the KC current? Pay attention to your role models, and see what they are doing. We should celebrate it” says Alexis in a video that was shared on X.

Earlier, women have received unfair pay in their respective fields, with the US Open introducing equal pay and “everything equal”, other sports are receiving investments and are trying to make everything equal for both men and women. He concludes the video with a strong statement that said: “Pay attention – women’s sports are just getting started”.
