Judge rejects that women footballers earn the same as men


Molly Levinson, spokesman of the players, said that they planned to appeal against the decision made by the judge.

“We are shocked and disappointed. We will not surrender our hard work on equal pay. We are confident in our case and we remain steadfast in our commitment to ensure that girls and women who practice this sport are not valued as children just because of their gender”.

In issuing its ruling, the court stated: “The women’s team has paid more in cumulative and average per game than the men’s team during the period of the class.”

Players as Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan they lifted up their voice to know that did not achieve what they expected.
