Not just for tennis fans! A captivating portrait of this powerful, courageous woman, who deserves a place in the pantheon of women's rights advocates along with leaders like Gloria Steinem (interviewed in the film). Tremendously inspirational and touching - you'll be King's superfan by the end of show. Make it a double feature with the 2017 movie, Battle of the sexes, starring Emma Stone.

So powerful - all of this was just ahead of my personal "awareness" as a young woman in the 80s. Billie Jean accomplished so much for all of us. I highly recommend this - share it with your daughters!

great companion piece to Battle of the Sexes - the huge influence on tennis of Billie's life after she polished off Riggs.
