Just three months before the US women’s football team goes off to defend its title at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, all its players have filed a federal gender discrimination lawsuit seeking pay equal to that of their male counterparts. The class-action lawsuit was filed on Friday in a federal court under the Equal Pay Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. It alleges gender-based discrimination by the US Soccer Federation (USSF).
