Gender Inequity in Footie

So, now that the Major League Soccer contract negotiations are over, we find that the minimum salary for each player ($60K) is 1/3 the entire team salary cap for every National Women’s Soccer League team.
This means that 3 minimum-salary men’s professional soccer players make as much as an entire team of women’s professional soccer player.

I understand why NWSL has this salary cap, I understand that many women’s players also have outside sponsorships, I understand that viewership isn’t the same for NWSL teams, I understand the national teams are paying the salaries of some NWSL players- I understand all that. But we have Olympic champions working a second job to make ends meet despite playing for a national team. But all those justifications still add up to one thing: the patriarchy sucks.

Stop telling women they just need to “lean in” to get paid more and start recognizing how pervasive this is, across industries.

Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
