This last weekend I had the privilege of attending the new movie Battle of the Sexes, which follows the main events in Billie Jean King’s life that lead to equality in the sport of Tennis. She was a pioneer in women’s rights and this movie illustrated all the emotion and driving forces in her life.
The premiere was a fun event held at the Regency Village Theater and the after party was held in the street. It was a very colorful event full of fun photo opps, amazing food and famous actors and other talent. I mean the original 9 that could make the party were there. The original nine are the woman that were the women that worked with Billie Jean King.
Being there was really amazing, I feel like I learned something about women’s lib that I never even knew existed. And when I mention it to people that are older than me they get excited like, I remember that event.
This was really a big deal. And I’ll tell you even more later as I also attended the press junket the next day and of course I have an amazing movie review coming up too, but for now I just want to show you the event through pictures.
BATTLE OF THE SEXES opens in theaters TODAY Friday, September 22nd
