Serena Williams is considered to be a strong woman — not only in literal sense of the word, but also in its mental aspect too.

Accentuating just that, the 23-time Grand Slam champion has hit out at sexism— something that has bothered her throughout her tennis career.

“I think the biggest criticism that not only me but my peers go through is, they’ll say something like, we don’t deserve as much prize money as our male counterparts,” Williams, who recently welcomed a baby girl with partner Alexis Ohanian, told TIME (as quoted by people.com).

“When you work so hard, you dedicate yourself, it shouldn’t be a double standard,” she added.

But, the 25-year-old is far from being bogged down by such obstructive stuff. “I think every experience can make you stronger. I don’t let anything break me.”

Further slamming the body-shamers, Williams said: “It isn’t always easy to be on this stage and play in a tournament and have someone make a comment about your body.”
