USWNT star Megan Rapinoe calls for equality in opening remarks to House Oversight Committee

United States women’s national team star Megan Rapinoe delivered opening remarks focused on change and equality for a special hearing by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform on Wednesday.

Committee chair Carolyn Maloney — a Democrat who has represented New York’s 12th congressional district since 2013 — organized the hearing to honor Equal Pay Day, a March 24 holiday focused on uplifting the issue of economic harms caused by gender inequalities.

Rapinoe will be joined by teammate Midge Purce and other members of team USA for an event hosted by President Joe Biden later in the afternoon.
