Tennis icon Billie Jean King says she is upset with the many white women who voted for Donald Trump, saying they "really don't like themselves."

King, who led the fight for equal pay for women in tennis, also says that there is more misogyny now than when she defeated Bobby Riggs in the famous "Battle of the Sexes" match in 1973, the subject of the new movie starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell.

"Tonight Show" correspondent Yamaneika Saunders tells Jimmy Fallon her back and every black woman's back across America hurts from carrying the weight of the election in Alabama. She says black women are as excited as Roy Moore would be if he was allowed back into Limited Too.

In an interview, King, who has also fought for LGBT rights, expressed the hope that the movie inspires a new generation to fight for freedom and equality.

In November, 53 percent of white women voted for Trump over Hillary Clinton, exit polls showed.
