    There's no reason why we're underpaid..... except for minor details like the men's world Cup generated $6 billion while the women's world cup generated 2% of that, $131 million (yes, two percent). Move to Venezuela if you love Socialism so much.

    If women brought in the money like the men, they should be payed equally... but they don't. Pay has to be commensurate with earnings.... they ain't there yet. She should be happy she gets to play a game for a living, instead of crying about how underpaid she is.

    It's could a slice of the revenue pie and you ladies don't generate half the money the men do. Same reason the WNBA women get paid less money. Maybe you should join the men's team to get paid like a man.

    No you did not fill all the seats only during the play offs. Not all games plus’s you all don’t have the Advertisement base. Not being sexist being truthful. When they show soccer games on TV every Sunday with big ticket commercials they will get paid that but until that point in time do you get paid what you’re getting paid.

    To the people saying, well they don't bring in as much as men! In recent years the Women's U.S Soccer Team has actually brought in more revenue than the men's team. And the men's team stands behind their fight for equal pay.

    She clearly has no idea about finance. There isn't the money in women's football to pay anywhere near qhat the men earn.

    You’re paid based off how much revenue your team generates. Attract more people to the games and you’ll sell more tickets, and make more money.

    You have not filled them? Stadiums are not packed when the team that was beat by 15 year olds play. The guys show up and they are...

    No worries, soon you'll be replaced by a biological male that identifies as female, so you won't be paid anything. Problem solved, right?

    It has nothing to do with gender equality,mens sports bring in more revenue hence why they get paid more.
