Pay the Women Now!

Pay the U.S. women’s soccer players a bounty. They’re an American treasure. - The Washington Post

I don’t want to hear another word about whether the Americans scored too much or over-celebrated. This is a team in full attack mode, fighting not just to win a World Cup, but to prove a larger point about their worth. They’ve been denied fair pay compared to their men’s team for years and they’re out to make a statement about just how good they are, both on the pitch and in the court of public opinion. You don’t make up a chronic pay gap with ladylike restraint. You do it by kicking through a wall.
