Women's Soccer Team and Equal Pay

I came across this skit from the Daily Show and love how clearly this issue is explained.

The women's US soccer team has pressed legal action, demanding their right to equal pay between the men and women's league.

Definitely worth the watch, no matter what your stance is on this!

Watch the whole piece below!

In my opinion, YOU GO LADIES!

@Jaybird816 totally - plus i cant imagine not being paid if they lose! wth is that all about?!
I'm not a lady but in my eyes they should be paid equally. Same as in my profession if a lady can be a good mechanic she should make the same as me and if better than more. I believe the women's soccer team is even better than the men's so they should be paid equally or more.
@sophiamor yeah that's crazy. if they don't win the lawsuit that's just messed up. i have met some very talented females within different professions and alot of time they are underpaid. which is bullshit. Come America it's time to realize that women are people and are equally entitled or should be. This is 2016 not 1950 got that beaver. Geee wally you're smart 😁
world champion team have no money... there more than sad.. 😔
go girls, gooooooooo!!!!! The Football is first game:)! (real football)... ;)

3 Things That Happen When You Call A Girl A Slut
Slut, whore, hoe; these words have become so engrained in our language that most of us say them without a second thought. But....I think we should take a second and think about what really happens when you whisper the word slut about the girl who just walked by. How it feels when slut is screamed at a stranger in the street. The domino effect such a small word can ignite. Lets talk abut the 3 things that happen when you call a girl a slut. You take away the girls right to own her sexuality The idea of a slut is so stupid. The fact that people still believe you can actually judge a persons self worth by the number of people they slept with is just barbaric. Get with the times. Women have the right to their own bodies and they can sleep with whoever the fuck they want. If you have a problem with that, don't try and sleep with them, I doubt they will be to broken up about it. You force others opinions of her While slut shamming is fucking stupid, people still let the word "slut" influence their opinions of someone. This can actually seriously harm a women's reputation, their relationships, their families reputation, and can even go as far as to stop someone from getting ahead in life. Slut is a very powerful word and can actually oppress the person who is deems "a slut." You perpetuate slut shamming and violence With slut shamming usually comes violence. More harsh words are expressed, bullying, cyber bullying, and depression is just the beginning. Worse, the idea that a slut will sleep with anyone can actually lead to rape and sexual assaults (fucking barbarians.) So please, do us all a favor and get out of the middle ages. Those were fucking awful times where no one even attempted to bathe themselves, so why would you ever continue to believe they were correct about a women's sexuality if they couldn't even figure out decent hygiene? End slut shamming, because who you sleep with is nobodies fucking business.
