Women's World Cup champs celebrate in NYC

A triumphant U.S. Women's National Soccer team sailed through the streets of lower Manhattan on Wednesday, hailed as champions by fans below.

The squad's 2-0 win over Netherlands in the final match on Sunday (July 7) capped a World Cup campaign that attracted huge television audiences and bestowed celebrity status on Megan Rapinoe, the tournament's top scorer and an outspoken team leader.

The victory also called attention to the team's fight for equal pay with their counterparts on the U.S. men's national team, and by extension, the issue of equal pay for equal work for women in general.

Motorcyclists with sigs reading "Imagine Equality" and girls waving flags greeted the team members, who were joined on floats by New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
