Alexis Ohanian thanks wife Serena Williams for reality checking Inequality and daughter Olympia for inspiration

Tennis legend Billie Jean King spoke out in support of fighting gender inequality in sport. She has fought hard to ensure that women’s sports are equal to men’s, especially tennis. She achieved many successes in her struggle, which also paved the way for the formation of the Women’s Tennis Association in 1973. She later passed the baton to other players like Navratilova, Evert and now Venus and Serena Williams who led the fight throughout her career.

Not only in esports, Serena has also led this fight in the venture capital ecosystem. Earlier this year, she revealed how gender and racial inequality are rampant in the venture capital ecosystem and vowed to address this issue through her firm, Serena Ventures. Recently, her husband Alexis Ohanian thanked her for helping him spot the gender pay gap.
