Tennis legend Billie Jean King isn't just a pioneer of women's tennis — she's a pioneer for women getting paid. In this freewheeling conversation, she talks about identity, the role of sports in social justice, and the famous Battle of the Sexes match against Bobby Riggs.
At age 11 King tried tennis for the first time and found her calling. She not only became the top female player in the world but also founded the Women’s Tennis Association and WTA Tour and pushed for gender pay equity and more diversity in the sport.
