The U.S. Women's Soccer National Team is in it to win it ... the fight against wage discrimination, that is! Now they are taking action — not only with a lawsuit against U.S. Soccer and a winning PR campaign — but also with the contemplation of boycotting the Rio Olympics this summer, if their demands aren't met.


While some stand in solidarity with the USWNT for equal pay, others feel an Olympics boycott might not be a good move. It could also backfire as part of their PR campaign. Should USWNT boycott the Olympics? Or is it not the best option?

USWNT co-captain Becky Sauerbrunn talked with ESPN about unfair field conditions, wage discrimination and the pay dispute. Last year USWNT won the FIFA World Cup Championship. Sauerbrunn says this is one of the reasons why they deserve equal day.
Celebs support USWNT.
Goal.com pointed out the USWNT can very well win their lawsuit and that they are winning with their PR campaign against wage discrimination. However, writer Mike DeCourcy analysis says if the USWNT boycott the Rio Olympics, it might backfire — as some might not care if they boycott.
