Equal Pay: How US Women’s Soccer Set the Mark (with Meghan Klingenberg)
The U.S. women's national soccer team faces a difficult road to a threepeat at the World Cup as the round of 16 starts this weekend. But tough battles are nothing new for gold medalist Meghan Klingenberg. The former USWNT defender joins Andy this week to share one of the most challenging hurdles she has faced -- leading the charge along with other members of the USWNT to secure equal pay for all women competing in international sporting events, enshrined into law in a historic bill signed by President Biden earlier this year. Plus Meghan shares her thoughts on this year's World Cup, lays out the case for why it makes sense to invest in women’s sports, discusses how you can support women’s soccer year-round and talks about her new podcast, “My New Favorite Futbolista.”
