Beyond being the All Around Champion, Simone has a total of fourteen World Medals. Ten of those medals are gold, which makes her the record holder for most gold medals at World Championships. She also has a floor exercise move named after her, which she created and continues to be the only one to compete. This move consists of a double back flip in a laid out position with a half twist. Though video shows she is capable of throwing an extra front flip immediately after the move, she matches it with a split leap immediately after landing it.

The way the accusation of her moving the ball was so readily dismissed by witnesses gives a strong sense of manipulation, power and greed.

Even this woman who seems to have everything my 12-year-old self wanted couldn’t find a man. If the beautiful women on these shows couldn’t find a man to love them, how was someone like me supposed to have any chance? This is the exact toxic rhetoric discussed in My So-Called Felicity In the City. In this autoethnography, the author describes comparing herself to other girls (Stern, 419), criticizing her glasses and braces and acting as though those are a reasonable explanation as to why it’s a suprise a boy liked her. That was my entire adolescence, comparing myself not just to the girls my age around me, but also to the women I saw on reality television.
Often the voices from third world countries are taken seriously only if they reflect the norms of the Western world because of dominant cultural values that are overtaken in media and around the world.

There were a series of campaigns, propaganda, and conventions that took place in this struggle; starting off by the famous Seneca Falls Convention, the fight for women’s rights began.
But for Serena she just wants to win, and that was her main focus. Just because Serena Williams is a “black women” (Claudia) she is seen to portray a certain type of image in “white America” because she is in the public eye, and on the flip side she overpowers her white competitors. But of course, once recognized, black excellence is then supposed to perform with good manners and forgiveness in the face of any racist indifference or violations.

Through injuries, sickness, training, and harsh name-callings Serena has showed the world why she is one of the top tennis players.

This soon spread all over across the country and state to where most girls wanted to be in Girl Scouts.This had a great impact on American society because without her, the idea that girls cannot do as many physical activities as boys can wouldn’t be that strong in most people’s head.
