Film Screening of “Battle of the Sexes” (2017)

March 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Film Screening of “Battle of the Sexes” (2017) is from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Halpin-Harrison Hall, Stimpson Auditorium. The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs became the most watched televised sports event of all time. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. After the film, hosted in honor of Women’s History Month, join in on a Q&A session with Dr. Gina Daddario, Chair, Professor of Media Communication and Director of Film Studies. This is a free event and is open to the public. All Women’s History Month events have been sponsored by Shenandoah’s Departments of Gender & Women’s Studies, Public Health, English, Languages & Cultural Studies, Film Studies, and Mass Communication, as well as by the Mosaic Center for Diversity, McCormick Civil War Institute and the Willa Cather Endowment. For more information, contact the Gender & Women’s Studies Program-Coordinator, Petra M. Schweitzer at pschweit@su.edu.
