Many members of the U.S. women’s soccer team have filed a class action lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation over allegations of gender discrimination, cliaming they get paid significantly less than the men’s national team despite performance the same duties.

According to reports, up to 28 players from the team are involved with the lawsuit, which was officially filed in a Los Angeles based federal court on Friday.

“We believe it is our duty to be the role models that we’ve set out to be and fight to what we know we legally deserve,” said USWNT forward Christen Press.

“And hopefully in that way it inspires women everywhere.”

The news comes less than three months before they participate in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France between June 7-July 7.
