Women's World Cup champs celebrate in NYC

Amid confetti and chants of "equal pay," New York honored the U.S. women's soccer team on Wednesday with a ticker-tape parade down the "Canyon of Heroes," celebrating its World Cup triumph and paying tribute to the players' emergence as icons of women's rights.

Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

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.
