As you watch & root for the US women’s soccer team this World Cup, keep in mind that they are being paid less than their male counterparts despite having much more success. #EqualPay https://t.co/7dIJCvnvhn
.@USWNT is one of the best soccer teams in the world, but despite their successes, they make substantially less than the men’s team.
I'm proud of the players for demanding #EqualPay & I'm supporting them on and off the field. https://t.co/n1jygXNz7k
As we cheer on @USWNT, let’s not forget that these superstars make significantly less than their male counterparts, even though the women's program has brought in more titles, awards, and revenue. I stand with them in the fight for #EqualPay for all women.
Can you tell me again why the men above are getting paid more than the women below again?

As if there weren't enough reasons the USWNT deserves #EqualPay, they just gave us 13 more.
Congrats to the @USWNT on their first of many wins of #WorldCup2019! I'm behind you in your fight for 1st place and your fight for #EqualPay.
Calling all young people:
Do I have anyone interested in discussing the national minimum wage? The reporter has a few male young people interested, and I've been asked if any young women would be interested? You can DM me - feel free to share. #childrights #EqualPay
O’Rourke "we need to confront that inequality today by ensuring that every workplace is free of sexual harassment and violence and that every worker can earn enough to support themselves and their families."#FightFor15 #Beto2020
In the years that the Women’s USA soccer team has played in the FIFA World Cup they have scored 125 goals.....the Men only 35. Women started the World Cup in 1991 the Men in 1930!!! #equalpay #FIFAWFC2019 #USWNT
If you're wondering what happened to my previous tweet congratulating the @USWNT on their incredible victory, a very kind friend pointed out that it seemed like I was saying they only deserve #EqualPay because of their success. @ussoccer should pay them equally because it's just!
The #USWNT scored more points in their #WWC2019 opener than the men have in their last 3 world cups combined (not counting 2018 because they didn’t qualify for that one). I truly hope today’s result helps their #EqualPay lawsuit.
For #equalpay discussions: @FIFAcom, why not promote the best of the women's game alongside the best of the men's, à la Grand Slam Tennis: @FIFAWorldCup & @FIFAWWC at the same time, at the same venues, with equal prize pots for men and women?
