The reason why the women's team gets paid less than the men's team is due to the CBA each fought for.  What the women wanted vs the men were completely different.  The Women's association wanted more guaranteed money which lead to less overall money.  The Men's association wanted more overall money with little guaranteed money.  Had the Women's team been under the Men's CBA they would have made more and had the Men's team been on the Women's CBA they would have made more. 

The argument that the USWNT is operating on is that they were already bargaining from behind due to the assumption that equal pay was not on the table so they took what they could get.  As their CBA is up in 2021 and they bring in a little more than the same amount of revenue as the USMNT now, regardless that from 2009 to 2019 the men have brought in almost double what the USWNT brought in, they can ask for the same CBA as the Mens or renegotiate theirs for higher pay.

Also of note, the US Soccer operates as a non profit.  As such, neither men nor women will ever see the type of money any other sports team does.  Sponsorship for both national teams are sold as a bundle so one does not necessarily make more than the other due to sponsorship.  Furthermore, MLS has been around since 1993 whereas NWSL has only been around since 2012.  All of NWSL's predecessors had previously folded.  This is also part of the reason why the USWNT bargained for different things than the men.  The NWSL is also up in the air as they are no longer under management contract from the USSF/US Soccer.

Good info. Yet doesn't change my position. The women chose a save route and pout about the money.
