There was once a time when women in sport were earning so much less than the men in the same game and, while this does still happen in a lot of sports, tennis has made the stand to make the women earn the same amount of money as the men. This has not sat well with a lot of people, who claim that it is not exactly fair, since the men play best of five sets, while the women only play best of three.
 
 
However, tennis superstar Serena Williams has been fighting for equal rights in her sport for many years now and she believes that giving women the same pay as men sets a good example around the world. Now, Serena has written an open letter about sexism, not only in her sport but also in everything else in the world, encouraging women to fight against sexism.
 
In the letter, Williams explained, "To all incredible women who strive for excellence. When I was growing up, I had a dream. I'm sure you did, too. My dream wasn't like that of an average kid, my dream was to be the best tennis player in the world. Not the best 'female' tennis player in the world. As we know, too often women are not supported enough or are discouraged from choosing their path. I hope together we can change that."
 
 
She added, "For me, it was a question of resilience. What others marked as flaws or disadvantages about myself - my race, my gender - I embraced as fuel for my success. So when the subject of equal pay comes up, it frustrates me because I know firsthand that I, like you, have done the same work and made the same sacrifices as our male counterparts. I would never want my daughter to be paid less than my son for the same work. Nor would you."
 
Strong words from a strong woman.
