U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy takes aim at World Cup pay gap

U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy is taking aim at the pay gap in international football.

Leahy, a democrat from Vermont, introduced a Senate resolution on Monday calling on FIFA to pay women as much as men at the World Cup.

In a news release, Leahy noted that the U.S. women's team is being paid $2 million for its World Cup victory this month over Japan. By contrast, the German men's team was paid $35 million last year for its World Cup victory.

"I hope the story of the American Women's World Cup champions not receiving fair treatment by FIFA will inspire more people to join the fight for equal prize awards," Leahy said.

"With this resolution that I introduce today, let the Senate be on record in support of fair treatment for all World Cup champions as we urge FIFA to change its policy."

FIFA did not immediately respond to an emailed question to its media department.
