Sexism in a nutshell.
The U.S. Women's National Soccer Team scored an epic win over the 4th of July weekend, giving the United States a reason to celebrate.
You certainly don't see that kind of dominance from the country's Men's Soccer team…

So why is it they're getting paid so much less than the male World Cup winners??
And we're not talking about 70 cents on the dollar here!
The total prize money allotted in the Men's World Cup last year was a striking $575 million. But this year's Women's World Cup players will divide just $15 mil!
That's just a bit over 1/38 of the prize money!
What the F (for feminism) is that???

For winning the whole darn thing, the U.S. Women's Team will get just $2 mil in prize money. To put that in perspective, the U.S. Men's Team — which was knocked out in round one last year — got $8 million!
If anything, they should be making MORE than the men!
Women's Soccer isn't a novelty! Sunday's game was the most watched televised soccer event in U.S. history!
Come on, FIFA! It's 2015; we should be much closer to the goal of wage equality by now!
Or can you only have ties on the field??
