What Serena Williams Wants Every Woman To Know (Video)

From being called fat to being told she looks masculine. Sadly, her eyebrows even took a nasty hit this year. But as always, Serena has carried herself with aplomb. She's refused to let the haters bring her down by staying true to herself. Williams has been honoured this year by being named Sports Illustrated's Sportsperson of the Year. Her acceptance speech, given on December 15, was nothing short of inspirational. She took the opportunity to encourage all women to achieve their goals, no matter the odds against them.
