Politics is creeping into every part of our lives, but I think this is a great article - here's an excerpt:

Rapinoe and her teammates led the charge for equal pay with their men’s team counterparts, suing the national soccer federation for gender discrimination in March. With their case pending and the team marching through the World Cup, Rapinoe then sparred with President Trump over his stance on racial justice. She promised (in salty language) not to visit the White House if the team won. Trump told her to win first.

On the steps of New York’s City Hall for the ticker-tape parade, Rapinoe used her platform with the same precision and unabashed style she showed as the top goal scorer in the World Cup.

"This is my charge to everyone: We have to be better. We have to love more and hate less. Listen more and talk less,” she said, adding, “It is our responsibility to make this world a better place."
