More-so than winning the World Cup yesterday (for the second straight time, mind you!), I love the messaging the U.S.Women’s National team was able to spread.
Equality for women, defiance of gender norms, and advocating for LBGTQ rights with strength, class, and joy. Some were as outspoken as MVP Megan Rapinoe (below), who scored several goals during the tourney and kicked president Trump in the ass a few times via press and media. Others empowered and inspired a world of fans by simply whopping the competition each night they played.
With our unfortunate president and his tendency to embarrass us with his so-called leadership, sometimes it’s difficult to be a proud American. Rapinoe, teammate Alex Morgan and the rest of their squad made it a little easier.
