Sunday’s win gave the U.S. back-to-back wins, and a fourth championship — which is two more than the next closest nation.

Equal pay is cooler” #USWNTParade— Planet Fútbol (@si_soccer) July 10, 2019#BREAKING : I just signed new pay equity legislation at the #USWNTParade .The women’s soccer team plays the same game that the men’s soccer players play — only better. If anything, the men should get paid less.Thank you @USWNT for helping lead this movement for change!— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) July 10, 2019This parade is evidence of how much the #USWNT inspire everyone. We’re near the end of the route, and we’ve seen little boys in full Carli Lloyd and Alex Morgan kits. Boys no older than 12 are screaming the “equal pay” chant. This team is truly America’s team. #USWNTParade— AO Hartford (@AOHartford) July 10, 2019Crowd chanting Equal Pay at the #USWNTParade #USWNT #WoSo— Mike Coleman (@mikegcoleman) July 10, 2019The crowd chants “equal pay” as the US women’s soccer team celebrates their World Cup victory at the ticker tape #USWNTParade in New York City— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) July 10, 2019There was a lot of purple hair, a tribute to Rapinoe: Lots of purple hair on the parade route.
