The U.S. women are a group every bit as badass off the field as on, one the country should be very proud to call its own.
It’s a group of 23 women who believed in themselves and their abilities and weren’t afraid to say so. A group that really and truly liked each other, wanting to win as much for the other 22 on the team as themselves. A group that confronted the issues that have roiled our society – gender equity, sexism, what we stand for as a country – head on, making sure these much-needed conversations keep going.
Their World Cup title is one for the ages, for sure. More than that, though, they’re a team for the ages.
For this age.
