If men’s and women’s soccer were truly equal, then Labbe wouldn’t have had to try and bridge the gender gap 2 May 2018 Sure, argue all you want about women having their own leagues. Make that argument “what if a man tried out for an NWSL team?” My answer is simple. Those arguments would be fair if women pro players had anywhere close to the same money and prestige as the men. They don’t. Not close.
