There are a couple of ways to look at this. The logical way is that we can agree on “equal pay for work of equal value.” If women’s soccer provides paying customers with value equal to men’s soccer, arguments for higher pay could be put to the customers.
Oh, wait. Those arguments have already been put. Case closed.
The other way is a lot more fun: Men who identify as women should be encouraged to play women’s soccer. Maybe they could get that group of 15 year old boys who trounced the US Women’s National soccer squad to defect, gender-wise. (There was a similar result in Australia.) This would raise the quality of “women’s” soccer, though it wouldn’t do much to increase actual women‘s pay.
Alternately, women soccer players could decide to identify as men and compete in the men’s league. We would see how many get hired.
Both of those solutions should easily be approved, since sports organizers are already letting males wrestle, run track, and lift weights in competition with females.
