Battle of the Sexes
Serving up a Fight for Equal Rights

Battle of the Sexes, the new film from Little Miss Sunshine directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, is to 2017 what Hidden Figures was to 2016. The movie tackles the subject of equality by seamlessly transporting us to a time when conditions were much worse than they are today, showing us at the same time how far we have come and how far we still need to go. Whereas Hidden Figures focused on racial equality along with women’s rights, Battle of the Sexes focuses not only on women’s rights, but those of the LBGTQ community. And it does so in an incredibly entertaining fashion.
