Senator introduces USWNT equal pay bill after letter from NCAA coach

USWNT World Cup 2019

"I received a letter from Coach Izzo-Brown highlighting her worries that women on the WVU Women's Soccer Team could one day make the USA women's team and not get paid the same as the men's team", Senator Manchin said in a statement.

Megan Rapinoe drew a lot of criticism for her hard stance that she was "not going to the (expletive) White House" if the U.S. Women's National Team won the 2019 World Cup in France.

Pulling all such funding will most likely jeopardize or at the very least severely hinder the ability of the U.S.to host the 2026 World Cup. Bearing the US national team's crest - with a new fourth star representing the latest world title - the floats will also carry officials and dignitaries along the parade route.

But it's not just United States Soccer that is in need of a rethink - there is also a massive disparity in the prize money offered by Federation Internationale de Football Association to the winners of the men's and women's World Cups. Ashlyn Harris has been the absolute MVP in documenting the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team shenanigans-her Instagram Stories is an utter delight.

The other part of this is that the USWNT is believed to now be in negotiations with the federation about equal pay, and 2026 is a long way in the future.

Gavin Newsom both tweeted in favor of Nike and welcomed the company to do business in their respective states. Last September, Nike introducing Kaepernick as the new face of its "Just Do It" ad campaign.

"The inequality of pay is unjust and this wage gap with the United States men's national team has to stop".

At a City Hall rally after the parade, de Blasio, also a Democrat, honored the team with symbolic keys to the city, saying it "brought us together" and "showed us so much to make us hopeful". The tape has since been replaced with paper confetti, already drifting down from office buildings before Wednesday's parade started.

Do yourself a huge favor and take a look at all the action from last night's yacht party and today's parade in New York City.

All of which comes despite the U.S. women's team winning the World Cup while the United States men's team failed to even reach last year's finals in Russian Federation.

"Make this world a better place", said Rapinoe, the tournament's top scorer, who thrilled the crowd with her now-famous post-goal pose, arms aloft and a beaming smile on her face. Rapinoe said on "Good Morning America" on Tuesday after returning to the U.S. The team has accepted an invitation to visit Congress. It's unclear if the winning team will be invited by President Donald Trump to visit.
