Megan Rapinoe stays woke after Team USA’s earliest-ever World Cup elimination, takes solace in her squad’s social activism that ‘changed the world forever’

What are the details?
A reporter asked Rapinoe if a memory stands out to her in regard to how she impacted Team USA over the years, and Rapinoe — who’s made a name for herself during that time by espousing left-wing social views — said it was fighting for equal pay with male players.

“I think this team has always fought for so much more, and that’s been the most rewarding part for me — of course, playing in World Cups and winning championships and doing all that, but … to know that we’ve used our really special talent to do something, you know, that’s really like changed the world forever. I think that means the most to me.”
