Simply months forward of the 2019 FIFA Ladies’s World Cup, on Worldwide Ladies’s Day no much less, the U.S. women’s soccer team sued the U.S. Soccer Federation for “years of ongoing institutionalized gender discrimination.” Suffice to say, it was an infinite second.
The group’s combat for equal pay made headlines across the globe, as did the horrendous disparity in wage between the ladies’s and males’s groups — a niche that remained steadfast regardless of the incredible success of the women’s team.
You will get first-person perception into this ongoing combat for equal pay in a brand new documentary from Inocente filmmakers Andrea Nix Positive and Sean Positive. A collaboration between HBO Max and CNN Movies, LFG tracks the group’s successes (including their 2019 World Cup win), how the motion and lawsuit got here collectively, and their persevering with battle to shut the gender pay hole.
The documentary options interviews with all the foremost gamers: Megan Rapinoe, Jessica McDonald, Becky Sauerbrunn, Kelley O’Hara, Sam Mewis, and extra.
And in case you are questioning, LFG stands for one factor: LET’S. FUCKING. GO.
