Senator introduces USWNT equal pay bill after letter from NCAA coach

The 36-year-old started just one game as her side won the championship for a second consecutive timeMore

Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) introduced a bill Tuesday that would prevent the federal government from providing funding for the 2026 FIFA World Cup until the United States Soccer Federation agrees to equal pay for its men's and women's national teams.

Regarding performance, contrast the women's latest win against the U.S. Men's failure to even qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

Rose Lavelle, the United States women's national team's 24-year-old breakout star at the Women's World Cup, might end up being the face of the sport in a couple of years. The U.S. never trailed during the tournament and beat the second, third and fourth place teams on its way the title.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer says Megan Rapinoe has accepted an invitation for the USA women's soccer team to celebrate its World Cup victory with a visit to Congress.

"Working with women as the Women's Soccer Coach at West Virginia University for over twenty four years and earning 17 Conference Championships, 20 NCAA appearances, and producing 25 professional players, I believe first hand, it is wrong for the US Soccer women to be paid and valued less for their work because of gender", Izzo-Brown wrote.

Under the current system, the United States men's team has the capacity to earn more money than the women's thanks to the higher win bonuses on offer to male players.

On The Five, Watters countered that the women's team is paid less because the women's world cup generates less revenue than the men's. "It is time for the federation to correct this disparity once and for all".

U.S. Soccer did not immediately return messages from CBS News.
