US women soccer team’s fight for equal pay "because we're clearly the dominant team"

The World Cup-winning US women's soccer team won its sixth medal (bronze) in the Tokyo Olympics, and it's arguably the world's best squad in recent years.

Ian Bremmer looks at how other countries do it, and how the US stacks up.
