Serena Williams Tackles Race, Gender, & Equality Issues in 'Wired'

Serena Williams guest edits and takes the cover of Wired magazine’s November 2015 issue, which explores the issues of race, gender, and equality in the digital age.

Here’s what the 34-year-old tennis star had to share with the mag:

On being a role model as a tennis player:
“I’m a black woman, and I am in a sport that wasn’t really meant for black people. I want young people to look at the trailblazers that we have assembled [in this issue] and be inspired.”

On staying positive: “Back in 2008, when I was competing in the US Open, I would keep little “matchbooks,” where I’d write affirmations to myself and read them during matches. It worked pretty well. But before long I found an even better way to inspire myself: I started using affirmations as the passwords to my phone and my computer. (No, I’m not going to tell you what my current affirmation is!) You should try it. You’ll be surprised how many times a day you log in and have an opportunity to trigger the positivity. I love that I can use technology that way.”

Amy Schumer & Serena Williams Pose for Pirelli Calendar 2016 - Check Out Behind-the-Scenes Photos!

Amy Schumer snaps a photo with famed photographer Annie Leibovitz while behind-the-scenes of her shoot for the 2016 Pirelli Calendar.

The 34-year-old comedian and actress is joined in the spread by tennis pro Serena Williams, Selma‘s Ava Duvernay, Russian model Natalia Vodianova, film producer Kathleen Kennedy, Chinese actress Yao Chen, activist Yoko Ono, businesswoman Mellody Hobson, author Fran Lebowitz, philanthropist Agnes Gund, musician Patti Smith, visual artist Shrin Nesha, and magazine editor Tavi Gevinson.

“I started to think about the roles that women play, women who have achieved something. I wanted to make a classic set of portraits,” Annie said. “I thought that the women should look strong but natural and I decided to keep it a very simple exercise of shooting in the studio. This calendar is so completely different. It is a departure. The idea was not to have any pretense in these pictures and be very straightforward.”
