Interesting times indeed. Looks like we aren't the only team with these culture issues. 

More fundamentally, I think it is the fact that interest in women's soccer has increased rapidly in recent years and FAs haven't adjusted and treated female players in accordance with that rise.

Well for both countries, the Women's National Teams are better ranked than their male counterparts.  

In the US, the colleges have to give equal resources to women's sport and football usually gets most of the money.

Now they want to extrapolate that to the USWNT who could get bigger crowds than the USMNT. 

But if they strike, will they not go to the World Cup?

Probably a game of chicken as the Women might just want a better pay deal like the Matildas? I don't know enough about the USWNT but I wouldn't be surprised if they have similar issues.

With the World Cup only 3/4 months away it seems an odd time to pick a fight.

The typical argument (rightly or wrongly) is that sport is the entertainment business and the men’s games attract bigger crowds, tv audiences and the associated rights deals and bring in more sponsor revenue.

However in the US the women’s team can have bigger ratings than the men’s team so that argument kinda falls over.

Also US Women qualified for the World Cup and the Men's team... well
