She is one of the most talented players of her generation and also a leader on social issues like equal pay, LGBTQ+ and gender equality. This led to her being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in July 2022. Rapinoe received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Joe Biden. The medal is considered the nation’s highest civilian honor.
“Beyond the World Cup titles and the Olympic medals, Megan is a champion for [an] essential American truth that everyone - everyone - is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect,” Biden said at the time.

Rapinoe to say goodbye
