What The U.S. Women’s Soccer Controversy Says About Equal Pay

The U.S. women’s national soccer team has gotten a lot of attention lately, and for good reason. They just won their fourth Women’s World Cup title, the most of any national women’s soccer team (the team with the next most Women’s World Cup titles is Germany, with two). This alone would arguably make them the most successful women’s national team in the entire world, but tack on four Olympic gold medals and eight CONCACAF Gold Cups and it’s on an entirely different level.
