#Empowered ~ US Women's Hockey Team
This incredible group of athletes have medalled in every Olympic game played, since women’s ice hockey was introduced in Sydney 2000. This March, they are boycotting hockey - opting not to defend their world title, in protest of pay disputes with USA Hockey.
The US Women’s Hockey team have had success unparallel to their male counterpart, yet are paid significantly less than the men’s team. “It's 365 days a year to be an Olympic athlete. It's our life, our everything” says teammate, Meghan Duggan.
Gender pay imbalance is a scenario so routine in sport, and we applaud the US Women’s Hockey Team for taking a stand against it!
