Sports Icon Billie Jean King: Women Should Be Brave, Not Perfect
Published to Forbes on November 14, 2018
One of the most respected athletes and change makers of the 20th century, tennis legend Billie Jean King, is still making her mark today as a champion for social change and equality.
I recently caught up with King at the Women’s Sports Foundation Athletes Leadership Connection in New York where she was being honored for her 75th birthday and where I heard her speak at a Q&A session and had the opportunity to interview her. She shared her personal insights on why women’s leadership is so important, how being involved in sports helps girls develop leadership qualities, and what her call to action is for women and girls everywhere.
