Billie Jean King

Billie Jean King is celebrated in this centennial year of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution for her accomplishments in advancing women’s empowerment in pursuit of true equality for all human beings. Among the driving characteristics of these accomplishments has been her conviction in the righteousness of the cause; her willingness to confront entrenched, formidable, and defiant power; and her ability to work collaboratively with disparate interests to achieve greater justice.  

"Eleanor Roosevelt understood this better than anybody: We all have to work together, and everybody counts."
