March is National Women’s History Month–Each year there is a special Theme and women whose lives exemplify that theme are selected as National Honorees.  NEVERTHELESS SHE PERSISTED:Honoring Women Who Fight All Formsof Discrimination Against Women

The 2018 National Women’s History theme presents the opportunity to honor women who have shaped America’s history and its future through their tireless commitment to ending discrimination against women and girls. The theme embodies women working together with strength, tenacity and courage to overcome obstacles and achieve joyful accomplishments.

Venus and Serena Williams are icons of discipline and success as they have together and separately set records for wins in the sport of tennis; both nationally and internationally. As we celebrate National Women’s History Month is befitting to note the accomplishments of these two professional American tennis players. Venus Williams is a 7-time Grand Slam Title Winner in singles and Serena Williams is a 23-time Grand Slam Title Winner. They are the first two players, female or male, to play in 4 consecutive Grand Slam Doubles Titles. Both players have also won 4 gold medals at the Summer Olympic Games.

Most recently, Venus and Serena Williams have invested and committed to helping children and families by giving back to their hometown of Compton, California in a huge way. The two have created the Williams Sister Fund and with this will launch the opening of the Yetunde Price Resource Center. The Center will be a Community Service Center that will connect Residents affected by violence with service providers. The Center is named after their eldest sister, who was killed by gun violence. In addition to the Resource Center, two tennis courts will be refurbished and dedicated in the Williams’ sister honor.

Venus Williams, a new mother, will play her first comeback match today and will mark International Women’s Day. Let us celebrate the contributions today on International Women’s Day—and everyday.
