You might have heard about all the Women’s Marches going on in cities around the world yesterday. Millions of women from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles and everywhere in between marched in parades. Many of them (especially the ones in the United States) were partly in response to the election of Donald Trump as president, but encompassed many related concerns about racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, climate change denial, and more.

Of course, the women’s national team is currently involved in negotiations with US Soccer over their new collective bargaining agreement, which is in turn influenced by their protests that they are unfairly compensated by their federation. Equal pay - not just between US WNT and MNT, but between WNTs around the world - has become the root of much of the team’s messaging about their plans for the near future. Most of these players are still in camp in Carson, but they expressed their desire to join in via twitter. Here are some tweets from WNT players expressing solidarity with #WomensMarch.
