Amid confetti and chants of "equal pay," New York City honored the U.S. women's football team Wednesday with a ticker-tape parade up the "Canyon of Heroes," celebrating its World Cup triumph and hailing the players' emergence as icons of women's rights.Wednesday's parade up Broadway in New York's financial district was more than a tribute to a championship team. It also cast a spotlight on the team's fight for equal pay with the U.S. men's national team, and by extension, the issue of equal pay for equal work for women in general.The ticker tape parade is a New York tradition dating back to the 19th century.
