Megan Rapinoe Says Women's Soccer 'Won't Accept Anything Less Than Equal Pay'

The ongoing battle for equal pay against the U.S. Soccer Federation rages on and Megan Rapinoe has a lot to say.

“We won’t accept anything less than equal pay.

We show up for a game.

If we win the game, if we lose the game, if we tie the game, we want to be paid equally, period.” The women’s team has fought to get the same as the male team, who win fewer games but are paid $30,000 more per player.
