Serena Williams Reveals How Pregnancy Has Affected Her Feminism
Serena revealed she doesn't want her child living under the same "stipulations" she faced.
We all know that Serena Williams is a complete badass, who champions women at every opportunity.
Well, Serena has now not only declared herself a proud feminist, but revealed that pregnancy has made her even more determined to fight for women's rights.
Serena, who is eight months pregnant, told Stellar:
There are barriers I hope to break so my baby, whether a boy or girl, won't have to live under those stipulations. I definitely am a feminist. I like to stick up for women and women's rights. So many things happen, and I just think: "Wow, why don't we have a chance?" If that makes me a feminist, I am proud to be one.
Her comments come just days after her fiancé Alexis Ohanian revealed that Serena believes she's having a girl – and her reasoning is perfect.
Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Alexis explained:
We're going to be surprised [by the baby's gender] I will say this, though: We have our hunches. Obviously, she won the Australian Open while pregnant, and she remarked that she feels like it has to be a little girl. She said that everything that little baby went through and handled like a champ, only a woman could be strong enough to take on.
