I don’t identify with feminism, Venus Williams declares

Venus Williams, seven-time grand slam winner, has said that she doesn’t identify with the term ‘feminist’.

She’s said that she ‘doesn’t like labels’, but that women today have more opportunities and power than ever before – and that she’s grateful for that translating into the sporting world.

“We truly don’t know how powerful we are. There’s nothing like a powerful woman walking into a room; her presence is like nothing else,” she tells Elle.

“There are so many emerging forces; there’s been so much growth for women in sports. It’s very exciting.”

She says that when it comes to equality and women’s rights, that was a conversation that she’s never been party to.

“There are always challenges that you have to overcome on a daily basis,’ she cryptically concludes.
