The US Women’s National Team is one of the most successful football teams in history.

They are also in the unique situation of being one of the few sports franchises in which the women’s team is more successful than the men’s.

Unfortunately, though, this hasn’t been enough to convince the United States Soccer Federation that equality in payment should be guaranteed across both teams.

For over a year now, players on the US Women’s National team have been battling their federation in the law courts in a bid to reach parity with the men.

In this episode, we explore the ins and outs of the US Women’s National Team’s lawsuit against the USSF and ask: how will US soccer come back from this?
