And Serena Williams spoke out about the importance of speaking out in Essence magazine.

The 37-year-old star said in the September issue: ‘Freedom means standing up and not being afraid to say, “I’m here” or “Hear my voice” or “This isn’t want I agreed to” or “This isn’t fair and that isn’t right.”‘

Adding: ‘I’ve done it my whole career. It’s knowing where I’ve come from, knowing my history, in particular, the sport that I’m in.’

Serena continued: ‘When I first started, there weren’t a lot of people who looked like me. So it was really important to always help other people feel as if this is something they could also be a part of…’

In her interview, she told Essence she spoke about the importance to be inclusive with her new fashion line: ‘We have an extended size, and we call it great because I don’t like the word ‘plus.’
