This week, Erin talks about the U.S. National Women’s Soccer Team’s lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation over institutionalized gender discrimination that affects everything from their pay to their working conditions. Then, Bryan brings some uplifting news regarding the relaunching of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus (the largest ever!), now co-chaired entirely by out lawmakers, and its efforts to pass the Equality Act to establish LGBT protections in the 30 states where discrimination remains legal.
