Five women who are busy crushing the sports patriarchy: the world’s all-time leading international goalscorers
"Every time [a male player] sits there, silently allowing that phrase to be rattled off — "all-time leading goal scorer"… it does take away from what Abby Wambach and Mia Hamm have achieved — total world domination." (x)

The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100).
