The United States Women's National Team had quite the celebration on Wednesday, parading through the streets of New York City in front of thousands of cheering fans in honor of their World Cup title.

It was a culmination of what has been a seemingly continuous victory party for the USWNT, filled with drinks, dancing, and general revelry. But even in the midst of a joyous moment, the American champions still made a statement, using pages from the team's equal pay lawsuit against U.S. Soccer as confetti during their ride down Broadway.

The moment was captured by backup goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris, who has served as a bit of a documentarian of the team's ongoing party through her Instagram account.

As a heads up, Harris likes to curse.

After the confetti celebration was finished, Harris caught teammate Allie Long eating a page of the lawsuit, cheering her on as she chewed saying "pay us, b----."

The American women have been vocal advocates for equal pay, and after their big win at the World Cup, their cause is gaining traction. On Tuesday, Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia introduced a bill that would block federal funding for the 2026 World Cup, which the USA is set to host, until pay equity is achieved between the men's and women's sides.

The fans are clearly on the team's sides, with thousands chanting "Equal pay! Equal pay!" at the stadium in Lyon just minutes after the Americans lifted the trophy.

The 2019 United States Women's National Team will be remembered for their dominant run through the World Cup for quite some time, but their fight for equal pay shows their impact on the game goes well beyond their performance on the field.
