Wine & Movie Night – “Battle of the Sexes”
Wednesday, July 10, 2019
Join us for a glass of wine and a light dinner, followed by a movie and discussion led by Rabbi Farb.
The electrifying 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as “The Battle of the Sexes” and became one of the most-watched televised sports events of all time. The match caught the zeitgeist of, and sparked a global conversation on, gender equality, spurring on the feminist movement.
