It's 'Throwback Thursday' and we're marking the 25th anniversary of the show this fall with a dip into the Brian Lehrer Show archives every week. This week, we highlight part of Brian's conversation with tennis legend Billie Jean King from 2011. She discussed her involvement with the 'Let's Move!' campaign, what happened when she was outed in 1981, and progress for women through Title IX. You can hear the entire conversation here

And starting in September, we’ll be looking at the last 25 years in 25 days – picking a news event, issue or icon from the past quarter century and diving in. Stay tuned!

160,000 dead of year of lung cancer--many of them now women, thanks to BJK's convincing young women that Virginia Slim cigarettes=female power.

What happened when she was outed as a board member of Philip Morris--arguably the greatest provider of death and disease in the history of the modern world? Nothing, zilch, nada.

What willful ignorance. Where are our priorities??

There is a split rock grave stone (split by a tree) engraved with "Here Lies The Last Of The Matinecock" in Zion Church Graveyard of Douglaston on the north side by the fence line.
