The Internet Can't Stop Talking About Megan Rapinoe's Power Pose — and You'll See Why
If you've watched the 2019 Women's World Cup, you've seen Megan Rapinoe — you can't miss her. The 33-year-old forward runs fast (faster than fast), and her 13 years of experience playing for the USWNT makes her a force on the field. And, whenever she scores a goal — like the two she netted during the June 28 quarterfinal against France — she celebrates (like this).
Megan said on Good Morning America that she thinks of each match as a stage, so she looks at herself as a performer who's "trying to entertain." The power pose she did during that quarterfinal — arms outstretched, chest up — she said, stuck. So much so that it turned into a meme. She continued, "It's sort of a funny playful pose, and we're always looking for good celebrations."
Twitter took Megan's most recent pose in full stride. Ahead, check out a handful of the best memes we could find. For some, her pose was all fun and games. For others, it represented more than just a celebration; it depicted women's undeniable presence and unwillingness to back down from adversity (specifically as it pertains to the US Soccer Federation gender pay gap).
