US Soccer Stars Sue For Equal Pay

Paris (CNN)The US women's national soccer team will "fight until the end" in its battle for equality, says one of the team's co-captains Megan Rapinoe.

With the Women's World Cup just months away, 28 players in the US squad last week filed a federal class-action lawsuit against the United States Soccer Federation, stating "institutionalized gender discrimination," which the reigning world champions say has existed for years.

The suit, filed in a federal court in Los Angeles on March 8 -- International Women's Day -- intensified the team's long-running dispute with the federation over pay equity and working conditions, stating that "female players have been consistently paid less money than their male counterparts."
