Equal Pay Resolution for Soccer Athletes Blocked
Senate Republicans blocked a resolution authored by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) calling on the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) to eliminate gender discrimination between male and female athletes. Leahy first introduced the resolution in July after the United States women’s soccer team was awarded just $2 million after beating Japan in the Women’s World Cup championship. By comparison, the 2014 Men’s World Cup winner, Germany, was awarded $35 million for its win over Argentina. Leahy’s measure calls for FIFA to end its discriminatory prize structure and provide equal awards for male and female athletes.
