U.S. Women’s Soccer is imploring Americans to skip work Friday at 3 pm to watch their epic match against host nation France. Step up, America. This is a big deal. Their plea: “We kindly ask that you give every employee the day so that they can eat a hearty lunch, get emotionally ready, bust out all their USA gear, and mentally prep for what will be an EPIC GAME!”

The win would give the team the opportunity to win their FOURTH World Cup, more than any other national team. These women, who are in the midst of a lawsuit against the United States Soccer Federation for unequal pay and unequal treatment, are role models and pioneers for women in athletics and more broadly, for equality in employment and professional opportunity. At the very least, American women need to step up and support what they represent. My daughters and I will be watching Friday at 3 pm. Will you? #MeToo #EqualityForMyDaughters
