She was a key figure in this movement, having memorably triumphed in the ‘battle of the sexes’.

She then played a pivotal role in founding the Women’s Tennis Association and achieving equal prize money for women at the US Open. Along with her, Venus and Serena Williams also contributed significantly to this fight. Serena’s husband, Alexis Ohanian, has also been a passionate advocate for women’s equality in sport.
