Rapinoe: World Cup a ‘paradigm shift’ for women’s sports | #shorts

U.S. Women’s National Team forward Megan Rapinoe told the PBS NewsHour’s Amna Nawaz that she anticipates a “paradigm shift” for women’s sports after next month’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

“I think we’re having it a lot in the U.S., but I think just globally you’ve seen what’s happened since last World Cup, whether it’s stadiums selling out, or the women’s Final Four, you know, cricket league in India,” she said. “There’s so many examples of this, and it feels like this is a paradigm shift, or a moment we’ll look back to and say, ‘nothing was ever the same after this women’s World Cup,’” she said at a news conference for the team’s media day.

The women’s World Cup begins July 20.
