POPSUGAR: I know you can't go into details on the current lawsuit, but it was cool that it was filed on International Women's Day. Did that have a special resonance for you?
Christen Press (pictured above): Definitely. I think that we are all very proud on this team of our fight for women — largely women in sport but women all over. And so there was a little bit of synchro-destiny there with the lawsuit timing. This is part of our legacy in our life. But at the same time, we don't want to be in this situation. We want to actually just be resourced and have the opportunity to be excellent athletes. In that way, it's not fun. In a moment like this, you're kind of like, "Wow, we've been working for so hard, for so long." And it's just this realization with LUNA Bar [that] other people are working and fighting. We're all coming together, and it actually takes something that's really not cool, which is gender inequality, and makes it a really cool and special moment where people are coming together, female and male. It's so much bigger than sport, and it's so much bigger than just our team.
PS: Equal pay is something that women across all industries and all fields have to deal with. What is something you've learned that they can take to the table when it comes to advocating for themselves and each other?
Alex Morgan: We're trying to rally for women to stand up for themselves in this fight. And I think the most important thing is continuing to raise awareness for the gender inequalities among all industries and helping women know that they have support in us. I'm so happy to have a group of 25 women to fight alongside and to feel completely 100 percent united.
Megan Rapinoe: Obviously, not all women in their profession have a full team of 20. Usually, it's just one or two. Especially the higher you move up, likely, it's just going to be one. My advice would be to seek that [information] out, because I think what they, whoever "they" is you're negotiating with, they want you to be siloed. They want you to not have all the information or to only be operating by yourself. That puts you in a much weaker position. Whether it's information online or seeking out other women or companies like The Wing, I just think it's really important to find that community and gain strength in that community.
