Billie Jean King – Mixed Media Painting


Billie Jean King played against Wimbledon champion tennis player, Bobby Riggs in the highly televised Battle of the Sexes in 1973 and won. This match proved that women were just as good as men on the tennis court. It also gave her the ammunition to threaten to boycott the US Open until women received the same payment as men in the sport. She won that battle too.
