1- It's earnings, not a reward.

2- They probably signed some sort of agreement towards how much they are compensated. Now they are using peer pressure to change the contract.

3- If they are unhappy, hold out for more money, or don't play and find something else to do, or go somewhere else to play.

The pay is already equal. Women aren't as good at soccer as men so they get paid less, end of story.

They could always try out to play on the men's team if they are so certain they are equal.

Because the top women can't sprint as fast or kick the ball as hard as the top men. Therefore the "wow, I couldn't do that" factor is lower. Fewer things that we think are extraordinary are done, thus fewer watch, just as with basketball or softball versus baseball.

I am amazed that women's tennis is able to draw the greater crowds. In gymnastics men and women compete in different exercises . In skating, well if makeup and costumes are part of the score how much is sport and how much is glamour contest?

As soon as the women can beat the men in soccer then they can be considered equal and get paid equally. Everyone knows women generally aren't as good as men at sports. It kind of brings to light the ridiculous equal pay argument for everything.

They refused to meet Trump in the White House, and had an opportunity to get more exposure. They shot themselves in the foot.

Even transgender males are beating straight females in sports. I don't see feminists whining about that....

They did have an agreement and were prevented from striking in 2016 by a judge and yes they signed an agreement, if you like playing its choice. They cant hold out for more money, cant strike but they can sue in court.

They already get plenty of publicity, they don't need to meet with Trump. Several have contracts with Nike and other companies, not an issue.

let's see the profit numbers.

does professional women's soccer earn the same as men's soccer for the owners? I have no idea.

equal pay for equal results. if women soccer athletes are generating the same profit for their work as male soccer athletes, they have every right to complain. if not, women soccer athletes have no basis to complain about their salary.

I couldn't find anything on profit but the US women have generated slightly more revenue over the last three years than the men.

The women’s team’s games generated $50.8 million in revenue from 2016 to 2018 compared to the male team’s games which made $49.9 million, according to U.S. soccer’s audited financial statements obtained by The Wall Street Journal Opens a New Window. . The media outlet reported in 2016 — a year after the women’s soccer team took home the World Cup — the team “generated $1.9 million more than the men.”
