Sandra Bullock speaks for equal pay for women's football team at 2019 ESPYS – Deadline



Add Sandra Bullock to the growing list of voices calling for equal pay for the US Women's National Football Team.

When appearing at ESPYS 2019 in Los Angeles to present the "best team" award, Bullock is pronounced in favor of women, who are paid less than the men's national team despite consecutive victories at the World Cup.

"All those who are in favor of equal pay," I said, said Bullock, before passing the microphone to two-time World Cup champion Olympic gold medalist and Rutgers alum Carli Lloyd.

Lloyd and co-captain Megan Rapinoe made brief remarks, but show host Tracy Morgan kept the flame lit in his closing remarks.

"Let's pay these women and fight cancer," he said.

The players from the United States filed a lawsuit against the US Soccer Federation against the US government. Their recent World Cup victory sparked a public outcry over the disparity, prompting at least one politician to threaten to withhold funds for the next Men's World Cup.
