“I never remember the personal feeling of the negative connotation behind the word ‘ambition’ until I started dating my husband now. And ambition seems horrible, horrible – for a woman – according to some,” said the Duchess, an executive producer of the podcast, a co-production of Archewell Audio, Gimlet and Spotify. in Sussexes.
“So, since I’ve been feeling the negativity behind it, it’s really hard to feel that. I can’t ignore that, too, in the millions of girls and women who are making themselves smaller – much smaller – on the way,” she added.
Meghan spoke in her podcast about the “pain” of mischaracterization, adding that if a guy was ambitious, he’d be “very famous,” but in a school class, “if a little girl was ambitious or raised her hand more, what would she be called?”
Williams, who Meghan said “embodies a spirit of ambition”, agreed and said, “I hope we teach our girls to keep their hands up and not be afraid.”
The 23-time Grand Slam champion said on the podcast, “My whole life has been one thing, so now I can focus on Serena Ventures, which is something I’m excited about.”
She also said she wanted to “expand” her family: “I’ve been fortunate enough to play tennis really well, but I think the best thing for me is being a mother. I think I can be really good at that.”
The tennis legend went on to talk about how difficult decision making and advertising was, revealing, “I was in Switzerland and I was just sitting in the hotel at the desk, just writing and deleting and writing and thinking and then crying and sitting in front of my computer with tears running down my face as I type these words and come back to These memories.”
“Sometimes it seems that ambition in women also suggests that you are not afraid of anything,” Megan said. “But as I heard Serena say, of course, the fears remain. I lived with her. The fear of making that last decision.”
“So, while Serena will soon be wrapping up her professional tennis class, she is not going to shut the door to her ambition. She will continue to do great things. To have the greatest time off the court. Being ambitious, I think is a beautiful thing,” the Duchess added.
