U.S. women remain focused on World Cup despite developments in equal pay lawsuit

Speaking to reporters in Reims, France, both O’Hara and Krieger said winning another World Cup was the only thing on their mind after it was reported Friday (June 21) that the U.S. Soccer Federation had agreed to mediation with the women’s national team to resolve their lawsuit over equal pay with the men’s team.

All 28 members of the U.S. team were named as plaintiffs in federal court when the lawsuit was filed in March.

The players say they have been consistently paid less money than their male counterparts even though their performance has been superior to the men’s team.

The lawsuit also outlines years of institutionalized gender discrimination, claiming travel conditions, medical personnel, promotion of games and training are less favorable for female players than for their male counterparts.

The American squad is in Reims to prepare for a Monday (June 24) knockout round showdown with Spain after breezing through the three group stage games without allowing a goal.
