Good Morning America – Billie Jean King on Title IX 40th Anniversary

On Monday, June 20, Women’s Sports Foundation founder Billie Jean King appeared on ABC to talk with Robin Roberts and co-hosts about her 50th anniversary at Wimbledon and the Foundation’s kickoff to the 40th anniversary year of Title IX. Billie Jean encouraged friends and fans to “Like” WSF on Facebook and stay tuned for big announcements.

Billie Jean King founded the Women’s Sports Foundation in 1974 just two years after the passing of the landmark legislation. Since then, the Foundation has been committed to keeping the promise of Title IX alive for this and future generations.
