Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative Honors Amanpour, Rhimes

The Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative gave its legends and trailblazers award to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and TV writer Shonda Rhimes at a luncheon today at the Rainbow Room in N.Y. King was interviewed along with actress Emma Stone, who plays King in the upcoming movie “Battle of the Sexes.” King’s Initiative promotes inclusion and equality, themes which resonate in the film. Stone said she learned from King, "One voice, one person can make a difference."
