CHICAGO (AP) Fans of the womens World Cup championship soccer team delivered petitions to U.S. Soccer Federation headquarters in Chicago that demanded equal pay for the players.
Wearing a red womens team jersey, 12-year-old Greta Lindall on Tuesday told fans that members of the women are heroes. She added no one can criticize their skills because they are the best in the word, and the next step is to pay them like it.
The demonstrators later delivered a petition with 200,000 signatures to USSF employees inside.
