Procter & Gamble donated $529K to help U.S. women’s soccer win equal pay — while paying some of its U.K. female workers 28.5% less than men

Secret deodorant’s donation to the U.S. women’s soccer team’s fight for equal pay is winning praise, but the brand’s parent company has its own pay gap issues.

Procter & Gamble PG, +0.04% donated $529,000 to the women’s team players’ association and threw its support behind the team’s battle for pay equity in a full-page New York Times ad. The women’s team earns 18 cents on the dollar compared with the men’s team and has sued the U.S. Soccer Federation, alleging pay discrimination.

“We urge the U.S. Soccer Federation to be a beacon of strength and end gender pay inequality once and for all, for all players,” Secret’s ad said.
