Women’s soccer has grown considerably in recent years and this has meant that players have the opportunity to earn better salaries in the European leagues and American soccer, where one of the most competitive leagues is played.
In the United States, 2022 was an important year after the announcement that the women’s team she would receive the same bonuses and salaries as the men’s team, a struggle the players had for several years to achieve.
Several teams have implemented this measure, but there is still a long way to go in women’s football so that they have better wages and equal rights.
