I cheer during the football games.The job may sound simple but the reality is their job requires hard work and determination.

I get fit and get into shape in order to carry out intense dance routines and stunts in cheerleading. I need to learn important cheerleading skills.

They have a higher viewership than the American male soccer team but get paid nothing.

Next step ask for equal fans and force people to watch their matches so they generate same revenue from ads and streaming.

Based on their record of play, which is clearly superior to the US mens team, they deserve MORE pay than the men. $5 says they would BEAT the mens team in a match & the USSF knows it. And at the risk of being #MeToo’d, it has to be said: they’re a whole lot easier to watch.

People argue there is not enough revenue or interest. US womens soccer team won world cup 3 times! I also did some research. Per The Nation sports website, 90% of sports editors are men. Ever heard the saying"if you build it, they will come?" There is not enough advertisement or encouragement! We women need to stand together!

I'm all in favor of woman's rights and equality in gender... However using gender to justify demaing equal pay seems unreasonable in some cases. Soccer is sport that generates revenue due to FIFA participation, sponsors, tickets, advertising etc... The value generated by those sponsors and advertising in men's and woman's competitions is still very different. Just demand to be paid the same may not make reasonable sense, at least until the sport generates the same level of attention and revenue in both sports for both genders.

They should be paid equally. I agree with #SerenaWilliams
