Chess Pioneer Sues Netflix

Nona Gaprindashvili, a history-making chess champion, has sued the giant video portal Netflix over a line in the series ‘The Queen’s Gambit’, where it was claimed that the female world champion had never faced men. Nona and her attorneys called the statement grossly sexist and belittling. “By 1968, the year in which the episode is set, she had competed against at least 59 male chess players.” The international news is full of the story.
