A sports-woman is lucky if she makes 70-80% the salary of a sports-man.
Most men, and even women, all over the world mostly watch Men's sports and idolize only men sports-stars, even when women's sports are often equally exciting.
The best women's soccer team ever, the current US National team, decided to fight against all of these issues in this world cup, both on and off the field.
The US Women's Soccer team sued the US Soccer federation just before 3 months of the world cup asking for equal pay as the US men's team.
So when this magical US women's soccer team won the final for the second time in a row, the entire stadium was chanting “Equal Pay, Equal Pay”.
Another amazing thing this women's team achieved is that they succeeded in making men and boys wear girl's soccer team jerseys. Nike just started selling Men and Boy's jerseys with Female Soccer star's names on them.
I have seen many big fat men wearing Heath, Morgan, Llyod Jersey's today — something I have never seen before.
The girls from the USA also caught a fight with their President Donald Trump, as their biggest stars like Rapinoe, Morgan have already said they will not meet the President even after winning the world cup. The US team believes their president does not share the same values that these wonder-women share. Megan Rapinoe, the sensational striker playing her 3rd world cup, said publicly her mother will be upset if she meets the American president!!
Through their unbelievable skills and performance, these girls had already proved that they are simply magical. But it is their off the field messaging and activism which will make these girls the true role models of global sports — for men, boys, and girls alike.
