Equal Pay Champion Megan Rapinoe Keynotes Texas Conference for Women

The U.S. women's national team star Megan Rapinoe has not seen her schedule slow down since the World Cup. She is the most requested and booked speaker right now in the sports world, with her latest engagement coming last week in Austin, Texas. 

Rapinoe was the keynote speaker at the Texas Conference for Women. She and her teammates have led the fight for equal pay, a topic that dominated the conversation. 

Rapinoe spoke about the responsibility she feels wearing the Team USA uniform. 

“To me, pulling on that shirt doesn’t mean just being grateful for wearing the stars and stripes," said Rapinoe. "That means fighting like hell every day to ensure that every person who lives under the stars and stripes are afforded the same opportunities as everyone else and that things are equal, and that women get paid equally,”

During the moderation question and answer session, Rapinoe was able to touch on a variety of other topics. She talked about the nerves she gets from her newfound career as a speaker and playing in the upcoming Olympics in Tokyo. 

Rapinoe has had several other speaking opportunities and appearances recently including the WorldatWork Pay Equity Symposium and the "What Matters To U" Speaker Series at the University of Miami. She has an upcoming appearance at the Massachusetts Conference for Women on December 12. 

Rapinoe's schedule is quickly filling up for 2020 as well, considering that a portion of it will be spent preparing for the Summer Games and heading over to Japan with her teammates. Due to that high demand, she is regularly being booked in the $75,000 range.
