Fans back US women's football team's fight for gender equality

The lawsuit filed by 28 female players accuses their employer, the US Soccer Federation, of institutionalised gender discrimination.

    On Sunday, the US women's football team will take on the Netherlands to retain their World Cup title.

    But once the tournament is over, they will also go to court to continue their fight against gender discrimination. The team is getting plenty of support on and off the field.

    Al Jazeera's Heidi Zhou-Castro reports from Washington, DC.
