Brazil joins the world in paying its female footballers the same as its men

In a great move, Brazil has agreed to pay its men's and women's national teams the same, including teams participating in the Olympics and World Cup.  They join Australia, Norway, New Zealand, and England in providing equal pay - but not the United States, which is locked in litigation with its Women's National Team players regarding pay equity.  As we see the rise of the Women's World Cup and women's professional leagues in the United States and Europe, it's finally looking like the world's best players are getting a little closer to their due.

The CBF has equalled the prize money and allowances between men's and women's football, which means the women players will earn the same as the men," said the federation's president Rogerio Caboclo.
