In honor of EQUAL PAY DAY, 23 members of the Women's National Team are each receiving $31,250 from LunaBar, their nutrition food partner. With a total of $718,750, this is the difference between the women's roster bonus and the U.S. men's national team.
Huge shout out to LunaBar for recognizing that the players are consistently paid less than their male counterparts despite their of all of their wins and efforts!
"And let’s be clear, this isn’t about their bravery and determination – which they rock in abundance. Or even about the money. It’s simply because, well, they deserve it.
We can all learn from their experiences. So they’re doing us a solid and offering advice, support and inspiration in your own fight for equal pay. Because equality shouldn’t wait for someday.
Someday is now." - LunaBar

We want to help give back in honor of EQUAL PAY DAY, so today we are donating a percentage of proceeds to the Billy Jean King Women's Sports Foundation. It's time to support women and give back to those who deserve it.
