Created in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1970, the Virginia Slims Tennis Circuit was a response to the underpayment of women athletes. It was also a marketing opportunity for cigarette maker Philip Morris to promote a new brand aimed at the liberated woman.

This exhibition tracks the evolution of the Virginia Slims tour and the decades-long efforts by Doctors Ought to Care and other organizations to throw tobacco sponsors out of sports.
