Lyon beat Wolfsburg, 3-1, in San Sebastian, Spain on Sunday to win the Women's Champions League for an unprecedented fifth time in a row.

Why it matters: Lyon is one of the most dominant teams in sports, winning the past 14 French league titles and averaging an absurd 4.6 goals per game against domestic opponents since 2015.

Star power: U.S. women's national soccer team stars Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and Hope Solo have all played for Lyon, and 2018 Women's Ballon d'Or winner, Ada Hegerberg, is currently on the team. They're loaded, year in and year out.

The big picture: The gap between Lyon and the rest of the world remains fairly wide, but it's beginning to shrink now that men's powerhouses like Manchester City (just signed USWNT stars Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis) and Bayern Munich are investing more money in their women's teams.

Quantifying women's workplace crisis

We're starting to see evidence of the coronavirus' erosion of women's workplace gains: 865,000 American women left the labor force in September, compared with 216,000 men.

Why it matters: Many of the women dropping out hold senior-level positions at companies, and their exit from the workforce means the already-abysmal representation of women in leadership at U.S. firms will get even worse.
