Billie Jean King, one of the greatest tennis players of all time, is the 17th hero in the New York Times bestselling series of biographies for ages 5 to 8.
Billie Jean King is one of the best tennis players the world has ever seen. But when she was starting out, she noticed that men and women weren’t being treated equally as athletes. Billie Jean knew that this was unfair, and she knew she had to change it. She fought for women in sports to get the same recognition as men, and for girls to get the same athletic opportunities as boys.
