why does the women's professional soccer team not have the same rights has the men's team in the U.S and the women's team in Lyon have equal rights with the men's team?

Carli Loyd and Alex Morgan are one of the best soccer players on the professional U.S soccer team. In fact, they helped the women's team win the World Cup this past year,2016, but then why does the women's professional soccer team not have the same rights has the men's team in men's team in the U.s and the women's team in Lyon have equal rights with the men's team?

The women's soccer team in the U.S are not getting the equal rights and equal pay as men's soccer team do. Recently, Carli Loyd and Alex Morgan have decided to go to Lyon and get the same rights that men have. In Lyon they will get the same rights as men because they will have equal pay and equal play time. Also they will play with the men's soccer team to get better.

According to http://money.cnn.com/2017/02/16/news/carli-lloyd-man-city-soccer/ "The moves by Lloyd and Morgan suggest that if players can't get equal pay on the U.S. national team, they may not stick around and play in the U.S. pro league."

Also according to http://money.cnn.com/2017/02/16/news/carli-lloyd-man-city-soccer/"Morgan said the team in Lyon is "committed to growing women's soccer, and provides "the women with first-class facilities and an unparalleled training environment on par with the men's team."

Soon, they will decide if they will stay in Lyon and get the same rights as men or go back to the U.S to see if they changed and now have the same rights as the men do.
