Well, America has another trophy for the mantle — and, once again, we have the badass ladies of the U.S. women’s national soccer team to thank. On Sunday, social media was flooded with celebrity reactions to the USWNT’s world cup win (deservedly so). While the prevailing sentiment was just one of overwhelming pride and a collective welling of inspiration, many stars also used the win as a springboard into a long overdue imperative: equal pay for professional women’s sports teams.
ICYMI, the U.S. women’s soccer team dominated the Netherlands during Sunday’s Women’s World Cup Final, ultimately walking away with a 2-0 victory and holding onto their title of world’s best. It was a sweep for the women, having won all seven World Cup games to secure a four-peat World Cup title. For context, there have been eight World Cup tournaments and the U.S. women’s team has played in the final five times. Of those five times, they’ve now won four (1991, 1999, 2015 and 2019).
So, not surprisingly, celebrities took to the internet in droves to celebrate this most recent win. OK, so that’s putting it lightly. After cheering on the U.S. women’s soccer team throughout the tournament, people are pumped AF to see them take the trophy.
The team will be welcomed home with a ticker tape parade down New York City’s “Canyon of Heroes” on Wednesday morning, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced.
