On Wednesday, President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden plan to mark Equal Pay Day by joining current and former members of the U.S. women’s national soccer team.
Megan Rapinoe was invited to testify before Congress on Equal Pay Day about her team’s pending equal pay lawsuit. “We are looking to carry this torch for so many other women,” she said.
Megan Rapinoe has returned to the U.S. women's national soccer team after sitting out for nearly a year, joining the squad for its January training camp in Florida.
U.S. women's national team players and the U.S. Soccer Federation settled their long-running lawsuit over inequitable working conditions with the men's team while leaving their dispute over unequal pay for additional litigation.
When the Women's World Cup players hit the field in France on Friday, they'll be outfitted in their own brand-new uniforms. And for the most part, that will be a first. In the past, the major athletic companies made the women's uniforms as versions of their country's men's teams. But not this year.
