We provide a self-contained axiomatization of linear inequality measures for coalitional games. Adding one axiom to those of Weymark (Math. Soc. Sci. 1 (1981), 409-430), we prove that all such measures must be generalized Gini functions of the Shapley value. Also, we generalize the foregoing result to the spaces pNA(μ) of non-atomic games.
