The United States women's national team filed a federal lawsuit with the EEOC against US Soccer for gender-based wage discrimination.

It's a pretty bold move in a series of bold moves from the WNT, who have gone from lawsuit to boycott to lawsuit in an effort to get US Soccer to listen to them.

Meanwhile, players, celebrities, and even politicians took notice today when the news of the suit hit.
