U.S. women's soccer team prepares for parade, accepts Congress invite

Megan Rapinoe lifts up a trophy after winning the Women's World Cup final

In March, all 28 players on the women's team filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation, demanding equal compensation with their male counterparts who earn much a higher base pay. But if the US men had accomplished the same feat, each of them would have earned more than $1.1 million. The Netherlands soccer team, who before this had only played in one World Cup, proved to be formidable opponents, defending the ball fiercely. "I don't think we want that to be co-opted or corrupted by this administration".

The women's team will be regaled in the same fashion as other heroes and winners, such as Nelson Mandela in 1990, the 1969 World Series champion Mets and the New York Giants team that captured Super Bowl XLII in 2008, according to the Alliance for Downtown New York, a commercial advocacy, research, and information group.

At the end of a segment about U.S. Women's Soccer player Megan Rapinoe, an MSNBC panel gushed and lavished praise over her politically partisan insults and statements against President Donald Trump. The federation will give the women bonuses about five times smaller than what the men would have earned for winning the World Cup.

The suit alleges that the organization discriminated against the women by paying them less than members of the men's national team "for substantially equal work".

"But from here on out, we'll just be known as America's team".

Watch the parade in the video above. Additionally, Jill Ellis, named 2015 FIFA World Coach of the Year, is also the first women's coach to win two World Cup titles.

"The whole issue of them getting equal pay is something that they do in the workplace", Gibbs says.

After the U.S. Women's Soccer team's dominant performance at the World Cup, many local female soccer players are using the team's win as an inspiration. Nike says the US women's soccer jersey is the top-selling soccer jersey, men's or women's, ever to be sold on Nike.com in one season. The USSF and the USWNT agreed to enter mediation after the World Cup in hopes of working out their differences.

But no matter how well the USA women perform for the masculine-oriented Federation Internationale de Football Association, soccer's world governing body, it's all still about the men's game. "You can't possibly understand what a childhood dream feels like until you live it".

Garret Prather brought his newborn son "to celebrate how the American women made us proud on and off the field". "You need to do better for everyone".

"The clear unequitable [sic] pay between the U.S. men's and women's soccer teams is unacceptable and I'm glad the U.S. Women's Soccer Team latest victory is causing public outcry".

For Narcotta-Welp, the general solution is simple, especially considering what the USA women's soccer team has done for the sport.

Mr Obama joined in the celebrations and posted a photo of himself with a custom jersey, congratulating and thanking "America's best team" for being a strong inspiration for everyone across the country. "At this moment, they are cultural icons and should be paid as such".
