The USA Women’s Soccer team is fighting for equal pay with the men, despite being the most successful team in USA Soccer history. USA Women’s Soccer is not the only team fighting for equal pay, the USA Women’s Hockey team just won their battle for higher wages after threatening to sit out of the World Championships. After winning a pay increase, the USA Women’s Hockey team went on to win the World Championships for a fourth time.
