Of course we should consider Serena Williams as a role model. She is not just an amazing and successful athlete, she is an incredible woman. As a woman, naturally Serena's body attracts scrutiny but she always has a body positive stance. In one of her interviews she said "I always say, 'Not everyone’s going to like the way I look.' Everyone has different types. If we all liked the same thing, it would make the world a really boring place! What matters most is that I like myself." Her advice to other women struggling with body image? "You are who you are, you can’t change it. And you’re beautiful."

Serena also accepts and respects the responsibility she has a sa women of color.

"Equality is important." "I’m a black woman, and I am in a sport that wasn’t really meant for black people."

She also welcomes the responsibility that comes with being a woman of color in tennis. "I embrace it and I love that I have an opportunity to do it because a lot of people don’t. And I don’t have to be anyone different, 'cause this is me. And it really fits well with me."

And in the world of sport where there can be massive differences in the levels of prize money paid to men and to women, Serena uses her fame and position to advocate equal pay for women and closing the pay gap, not just in sport.

Let's finish this point with one of her statements

"My goal is to inspire every woman out there. My new saying for the past few years has been, 'The success of one woman should be the inspiration for the next.'"
