BATTLE OF THE SEXES
In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s World #1 Billie Jean King and ex men’s champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs was billed as “The Battle of the Sexes”. It became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. Together, they served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.
