Women should not be paid equally to men in Tennis

This is a petition to lower the prize money for women in Tennis, this is justifiable as they do half the work then men, have less media attention, less television coverage, generally there is less interest and it is lower quality.

Women should get 2/3 the prize money that men do for being eliminated in the same round of a 250/500/1000 and Grand Slam event.
