世界杯冠军美国女足国家队的全部28名队员对美国足协采取了法律行动。她们说,足协付给他们的薪水低于男性球员,并表示他们没有享有平等的训练、旅行和比赛条件。

The women filed their lawsuit in Los Angeles on Friday, which was International Women's Day.The case claims gender-based discrimination by the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF).

The action comes just three months before the American women will defend their title at the Women's World Cup in France.

The players say they have faced ongoing "institutionalized gender discrimination" including unequal pay.The women also say they have the same responsibilities as players on the U.S. men's national team.They are seeking equal pay and treatment, along with payment for lost earnings over the years.

球员们表示,她们一直面临着“制度化的性别歧视”,包括不平等的薪酬。这些女性还表示,她们与美国男足国家队的队员有着同样的责任。他们要求同工同酬、待遇平等,同时还要求赔偿多年来的收入损失。

The U.S. Women's National Team Players Association was not part of the lawsuit.However, its representatives said in a statement that the association "supports the plaintiffs' goal of eliminating gender-based discrimination by USSF."

美国女子国家队球员协会没有参与诉讼。然而,其代表在一份声明中表示,该协会“支持原告消除美国足协性别歧视的目标”。

Alex Morgan, a member of the women's team, said in a prepared statement,"Each of us is extremely proud to wear the United States jersey, and we also take seriously the responsibility that comes with that.We believe that fighting for gender equality in sports is a part of that responsibility."

女足成员亚历克斯·摩根在一份事先准备好的声明中表示:“能穿上美国队服,我们每个人都感到非常自豪,我们也认真对待随之而来的责任。我们认为,为体育领域的性别平等而奋斗是这一责任的一部分。”

The U.S. Soccer Federation did not immediately comment on Friday.

美国足协周五没有立即发表评论。

The U.S. women's soccer team has seen great international successes, including three World Cup championships and four Olympic gold medals.

美国女足在国际上取得了巨大的成功,获得过三次世界杯冠军和四枚奥运会金牌。

When the team won its most recent World Cup title in 2015, it was the most-watched soccer game in American television history.
