The U.S. Women’s soccer team deserves equal pay
Paying women less than men is wrong. Pay players on the U.S. Women's National Soccer team equal to the men’s team!
U.S. women soccer players are paid far less than men for doing essentially the same job. This isn't just patently sexist, it's also absurd given that the women’s team has been far more successful on the international stage than the men’s team.
Why is this important?
With the Summer Olympics taking place this summer – and a new HBO documentary shining a spotlight on the pay discrepancy – now is the perfect time to demand that U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) changes its policies and pays women as much as men.
This isn’t just about soccer. The pay gap in the United States means a woman loses an average of $400,000 over a lifetime – and it's much higher for most women of color.
The USSF can be an example for decision-makers across the country by paying women equal to men. Add your name to the petition right now if you support equal pay for the U.S. Women's National team.
