In an interview with Common for The Undefeated, Serena Williams explained how being a woman in sports is a whole different game: “I think being a woman is just a whole new set of problems from society that you have to deal with, as well as being black, so it’s a lot to deal with . . . and, yeah, if I were a man, I would have 100 percent been considered the greatest ever a long time ago.” Let’s just say, she’s had to deal with some sh*t, and she knows what she’s talking about. And while her outstanding tennis accomplishments have put her on the highest pedestal and inspired a younger generation of women athletes, it’s her outspoken advocacy for body positivity and confidence that’ll leave an everlasting impact. We pulled Serena’s most inspiring body-positivity quotes that will make you, too, feel sexy and powerful in your own skin.
