The US Olympic Committee, a non-profit organization formed to promote US prowess in the Olympics, pays US Olympians a set fee for every Olympic medal they win. Those USOC payments are based only on whether the medal is gold, sliver, or bronze. The USOC doesn't alter those fees based on how much revenue a sport generates, or upon the gender of the athlete.
Contrast that to the US Soccer Federation, which pays female athletes in the World Cup far less than male players. The USSF is also a non-profit, and about 52% of all registered soccer players in the US are female. Consequently, registration fees from female players provide about half of the USSF operating budget. On top of that, compare the accomplishments of the WNT to the MNT over the course of the last 30 years. Its clear the women are being shortchanged. while doing far better than the men on the pitch.
