Serena Williams Joins the Fight Against Domestic Violence

Serena Williams Joins the Fight Against Domestic Violence and Says Daughter Olympia is Her Inspiration

Tennis star Serena Williams joins the crusade to stop domestic violence. Her passion is driven by her wanting to be a strong role model for her 9-month-old daughter and women suffering from not only domestic and financial violence.

Williams has joined forces with Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse initiative where she hopes she can speak up for others that are not able to do so.

At a event held on Wednesday for the strategy the tennis champ said, “These women probably can’t use their voice so it’s important for them to know that there are people out there that are using their voice and letting them know that there is a place, that we can do something about it.”

As stated by Allstate, one in four women will experience domestic violence at some point in their lives, and 99 percent of cases being financial abuse. The startling statistics hit the 36-year-old new mother hard.

“Having a daughter means that she’s one in four. Hopefully, those stats don’t go up by the time she’s dating and meeting people, but they can if you don’t make people aware of it,” she said.

“Domestic abuse is a subject that people are not really comfortable talking about, but sometimes talking about the uncomfortable is what we have to do,” Williams said. “We’re doing that now with Me Too, with Times Up, and I feel like we’re making those steps. We want to make this a movement.”

Williams is a known advocate for equal pay and women’s rights in the sports arena. Serena has been known to not keep quiet and sit on the sidelines and reminds women that their voice is important if there are going to be changes made. Her greatest words of advice she could give to her daughter and other women is, “always speak up, and from the first day.”

She continued, “If you keep letting it go on, the situation gets worse and worse until you’re just completely downtrodden.”

As a mother of a daughter, Serena’s wish is that young boys are educated from a young age on what is acceptable and unacceptable. She also believes that men need to join the crusade and become more supportive of women. She ended by saying, “It’s a human rights issue. We should just want to be better humans.”

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Celebrate Baby Shower with a Legendary Cake Buffet

Chrissy Teigen is one step closer to welcoming her baby boy! The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, 32, was treated to yet another baby shower in Los Angeles on Friday, April 27.

The all-star guest list included Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Teigen’s handsome hubby, John Legend, took the keys, expertly playing the piano throughout the evening.

An impressive array of menu items may have curbed some of Teigen’s pregnancy cravings. A low-key dinner from Shake Shack was followed by a buffet of five elegant cakes presented by guest Kris Jenner, all of which featured legendary puns and phrases, such as “A Legend in the Making.”

a lot goin on at surprise baby shower 🤣

Mom-to-be Teigen feasted on carrot cake late into the evening, an adorable scene which Kardashian documented in an Instagram Story. The guest of honor broke into giggles when she realized she was caught in the act.

Teigen and Legend, 39, can’t wait to become a family of four. The proud parents share daughter Luna Simone, who celebrated her second birthday earlier this month with a Sesame Street-themed cake created by Mom and Dad, and the birthday girl herself.

It has been a whirlwind year for the couple, who announced their pregnancy in November 2017. One month later, the Lip Sync Battle presenter was showered with love and gifts from her best girlfriends at a surprise baby shower in New York City.

Teigen, who conceived her daughter through in vitro fertilization, decided to try IVF again for the couple’s second child. “You do the whole process again to try to get as many embryos and eggs as possible,” the mother-to-be told People back in February. “Everyone is freezing everything, and then you make the embryos out of what you freeze and try to make viable perfect embryos.”

It was unclear leading up to this week’s baby shower if Teigen and her hubby would keep their Friday night dinner plans with West and Kardashian. “@kimkardashian are we still doing dinner Friday or no lol,” Teigen wrote on Twitter after West shared a private text message from Legend, who called West out for being a Trump supporter.

We got love. Agree to disagree

The gents, however, put any disagreements aside for the Friday night shindig. “We got love,” West wrote on Twitter, alongside a snap of he and his longtime friend. “Agree to disagree.”
