NY showers US women's soccer team with confetti and love

As The Washington Post notes, "It's tough to make a straightforward comparison of the earnings for men and women players, because the two teams have different collective-bargaining agreements that outline different pay structures".

Cuomo announced the news on Twitter Wednesday morning, sharing a photo of himself with the newly-singed legislation at the USWNT World Cup celebration in lower Manhattan. "We would much prefer to have a collaborative approach with FIFA, with the federation - how can we move this forward, how can we go to the next step, to create a world that is equal and fair for everyone?"

That continued Wednesday, when the USWNT was greeted by political protesters during their victory parade down the Canyon of Heroes in New York City.

Arguably the most powerful moment in Sunday's 2-0 final victory over the Netherlands came after the final whistle when a chant of "equal pay" could be heard ringing around the State de Lyon. Also, the women's national team made revenue in 2016 where the men made a net loss. That support includes money for host cities, participating state or local agencies, the U.S. Soccer Federation, Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), and Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).

Obviously fuming on the morning show, Piers ranted: "This is so ridiculous, this obsession her and Harry have about privacy". However, whilst she was there, it's been reported her bodyguards warned fans not to take pictures of the Duchess of Sussex.

According to the Associated Press, Rapinoe - one of the team's co-captains - has accepted an invitation from Congress, including Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I think that we need to have a reckoning with the message that you have, and what you're saying about making America great again. "We look forward holding those feet to the fire". "I think that you're harking back to an era that was not great for everyone".

Cuomo and the team then passed around a sign that read "Parades are cool". "New York will continue to lead the way forward and stand in solidarity with women and girls in every corner of this state". "Today, on behalf of all of us at U.S. Soccer, I want to say, we hear you, we believe in you, and we're committed to doing right by you".

Adoring fans lined New York City's Canyon of Heroes on Wednesday to praise the World Cup-winning US women's national soccer team as athletic leaders on the field - and as advocates for pay equity off it.
