The U.S. women’s soccer team beat out the Netherlands for the title of 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup champions Sunday, July 7 in Lyon, France. Now, they seek to use their platform of victory to battle wage inequality for women soccer players by suing U.S. Soccer. Filed in March 2019, the complaint states U.S. Soccer discriminates against women players due to gender, paying them less despite their recent track record of outperforming male soccer players on the field. Plaintiffs involved in this lawsuit include U.S. soccer royalty Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, and Carli Lloyd.
