"Despite the fact that these female and male players are all called upon to perform the same job responsibilities on their teams ... the female players have been consistently paid less money than their male counterparts," the women say in their suit.
"This is true even though their performance has been superior to that of male players -- with the female players, in contrast to male players, becoming world champions."
They're right -- the USWNT are not only champs but perennial contenders while the U.S. Men's National Team sucks so bad, they didn't even make the World Cup in 2018.
Oh, and the timing of the lawsuit is interesting -- filed on International Women's Day, which happens to be 3 months before the Women's World Cup begins in France.
In the suit, the women allege gender discrimination. They're seeking to end "the USSF's discriminatory practices."
