Billie Jean King

Overview

In a world riddled with injustice, it can feel impossible for one person to make a difference. But Billie Jean King's autobiography, All In, shows us that couldn't be further from the truth. King teaches us to take our destinies into our own hands and help shape the world around us for the better.

Over the course of her career, Billie Jean King was ranked number one in women's tennis for six years and won 20 career titles at Wimbledon. She was also a trailblazer for gender equality, securing equal pay for women in the first American major tournament.

King recounts her entire life story from learning tennis as a kid, to becoming a champion, to her continued efforts as an activist today. While she recounts many of the important matches of her career, her efforts in the fight for equality are just as important to her story.
