Women’s soccer players make WAY more money for the US soccer federation but earn 44% less– and now they’re suing for equality

In simple terms: The men earned four times as much to lose a tournament as the women earned to win the whole thing. Read the US women’s statement after the jump. And that’s not all: women’s physical playing conditions are different in one important way from the men’s.


Some things are so inherently awesome they require no explanation, so please enjoy this video from Gascon Horsemanship of a very familiar inflatable T-Rex riding a beautiful trained horse as it prances while also kicking a giant soccer ball (and that’s only the beginning). It’s Jurassic Paso Park!
