Why women's professional soccer doesn't get the respect - or pay - it deserves

Gwendolyn Oxenham played a season of soccer for a top pro team in Brazil. She was paid nothing. A horse sometimes grazed in the middle of the field where the team practiced. Now she has written a book that tells the personal stories of some of the sport’s best women players at a time when soccer is big business for some.
