Women's Equal Pay in Sports

This was published a while ago, but Julie's presentation about Rose Schneiderman made me think of this interview with the filmmaker of 'Venus Vs,' one of the films in ESPN's series focusing on Title IX and women athletes.  The film talks about women tennis players' fight for equal pay and prize money, started by Billie Jean King (who came to the Ath last year!).  Both Williams and King have been politically active in forwarding women's rights, as well as tearing it up on the court!

Here's the link to the interview:

If you're interested, here is the link for ESPN's "Nine for IX" series of short films:
