The US Women’s Soccer Team’s Campaign for #EqualPay…Explained Through Memes

In 2015, the US Women’s Soccer Team won their 3rd World Cup



With nearly 23 million viewers, the game was the most watched soccer match in US history




And they raised $20 million more in revenue than the men’s soccer team



Yet, the men get paid 75% more than the women



But wait. There’s more:

Both the men’s and women’s teams have to play 20 friendlies (international matches that are not in tournaments) a year.

If the women win, they get a bonus of $1,350


not bad


… but, if they tie or lose, they get nothing



The men’s team on the other hand gets $5000 for every tie or loss


wait a minute


… and up to $17,625 for a win




And some people don’t think wage discrimination exists…
