The U.S. women’s hockey team stunned the sports world Wednesday when it announced it would not be playing in the upcoming IIHF World Championship due to stalled negotiations with USA Hockey regarding fair wages and support.
Since the team’s announcement, it has received public support from fans and peers alike — including from its counterparts on the U.S. women’s national soccer team. Several players on the team posted the hashtag #BeBoldForChange with a link to the story, and Alex Morgan wrote a message of solidarity on her Twitter account.
Now let’s hope all of this support helps the cause and gives these talented women the support and treatment they rightfully deserve.
