Ser­ena Wil­liams talks moth­er­hood, in­se­cu­ri­ties at con­fer­ence

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - SPORT -

Ser­ena Wil­liams has opened up about par­ent­ing, moth­er­hood and her own in­se­cu­ri­ties dur­ing a women’s con­fer­ence in Philadel­phia.

The ten­nis star was one of a num­ber of speak­ers Fri­day at the Penn­syl­va­nia Con­fer­ence for Women.

She told the group of about 10,000 at­ten­dees: “I al­ways have these in­se­cu­ri­ties that I’m not good enough as a mom. We all go through these dif­fer­ent emo­tions that we all don’t feel com­fort­able talk­ing about. But I think we should.”

The Philly Voice re­ports she also spoke about the dis­par­ity in health out­comes be­tween black and white moth­ers and her sta­tus as an in­spi­ra­tion for work­ing moms.

She wrapped up by say­ing she wants her 1-year-old daugh­ter to grow up in a world where women sup­port other women.

She says “the suc­cess of an­other woman should be the in­spi­ra­tion to the next.”
