Alex and her Olympics appearance
The athlete and her team have won World Cup two times. She was supposed to play at the Olympics scheduled for July 2020 in Tokyo in Japan.
But due to the coronavirus crisis, the organizing committee has pushed it forward to next year. Hence, she now has lots of time to practice for it.
Since there is no game to be played in the near future, Alex and her team are focusing on the team’s ongoing dispute with US Soccer over gender discrimination as regards to pay and status.
More about the gender discrimination dispute
The US women’s national team is fighting for gender equality in their sports. But the team has been devastated by a recent judgment that went against them.
On 1 May 2020, Judge Gary Klausner ruled in favor of US Soccer. He dismissed USWNT’s Equal Pay Act claim and its Title VII claim of discrimination based on turf conditions.
But USWNT is upset with the decision. Therefore, it has appealed against the last week’s ruling. Additionally, it wants to postpone the trial which the court has now scheduled for 16 June 2020.
Their lawyers stated:
“The argument that women gave up a right to equal pay by accepting the best CBA possible in response to USSF refusal to put equal pay on the table is not legit reason for continuing to discriminate against them.”
Furthermore, the filing added:
“Simply put, the dismissed equal pay claims constitute the core of Plaintiffs’ case, and without a final resolution on their status, it will be exceedingly difficult for the Parties ever to reach a settlement,”
Alex made an appearance on Good Morning America last week. She expressed that the latest judgment has totally surprised her. She said:
“We were just shocked. This decision was out of left field for us. I think for both sides it was very unexpected.
“We will definitely will be appealing and moving forward. If anyone knows about anything about the heart of this team, we are fighters and we will continue to fight together for this.”
