U.S. women's national team goalie Hope Solo endorsed equal pay for female athletes on Tuesday, tweeting a photo of a fan holding a sign that read “Equal Pay for [Female] Athletes” and adding “Could not agree more!”The sign was seen at Tuesday's World Cup victory rally in Los Angeles, just two days after the U.S. defeated Japan 5–2 to win its record third World Cup. The broadcast of the Women's World Cup final averaged 25.4 million viewers in the United States, shattering the record for most-viewed soccer game ever in the country–men’s or women’s. The U.S. will take home $2 million for winning the tournament, compared to the $35 million Germany received for winning the men's World Cup in 2014 or the $1.5 million any team who participated in that 2014 tournament received.• Watch: USWNT leads crowd in ‘I believe that we just won’ chantThe 2011 Women's World Cup brought in $5.8 million in advertising revenue, compared to the $1.4 billion the men's World Cup in 2014 brought in, according toThe New York Times.According to the Times, the National Women's Soccer League, which almost all of the USWNT players play in, pays players as little as $6,000 per 20-week season.& amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;b r&am p;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;am p;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;am p;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;2010 Mens World Cup generated just under $4bn
2011 Womens WC generated $75m (I was actually shocked it was this much tbh)

Plot twist: the women players actually got a bigger % of the revenue.

I think they might do but they simply don't want to accept the principle of supply/demand because some of these feminist types are deeply insecure about women reeling in less money and want to appear equal
