In this image, Serena Williams is standing on stage at the Campions Dinner in a beautifully elegant dress, yet the media torn her down with comments saying she is “too masculine” or “this isn’t what a woman should look like.” Serena Williams, and other female athletes in general, are constantly under scrutiny for their fit and sculpted physique. Williams continues to stand up to the media, saying “no one should ever think femininity and athleticism are mutually exclusive.”
