SHOW THEM THE MONEY Besides winning the World Cup, the U.S. Women’s National Team has done something truly amazing. They got the whole country talking about equal pay for women. The wage gap has became the subject of conversation on sports radio and in places typically unbothered by gender inequality. [HuffPost]

U.S. WOMEN’S SOCCER PLAYERS PROTEST UNEQUAL PAY In a stark message about unequal pay, the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team wore their jerseys inside out during the national anthem before their match against Japan Wednesday. Worn inside out, U.S. Soccer Federation’s logo is obscured, but the stars representing the team’s World Cup victories remain visible. Last year, 28 members of the team filed a lawsuit demanding equal pay and benefits that are offered to the men’s team. [HuffPost]
