Quote of the day: Hope Solo

“We were talking last night at dinner about how it has been almost part of our mindset, not just as athletes on this team, but as women, to accept less. We’ve been brainwashed as women to not stand up for equal pay with men. It’s not just in sports, it’s in every workforce for all women. We are trying to change the mindset. To shift the thinking. And that is something that is incredibly difficult to do. It’s a fight that I don’t think we’re going to be able to stop fighting.”
