"I find it interesting that she did it only when she was losing". "I've seen a lot of people get called for coaching before, and you might have a grumble and stuff, but you get on with it". "To say she's fighting for women's rights, when what she is, is a bad sport". "Professional tennis players, sometimes, I think we lose sight of that". That would tend to create a double standard disfavoring women when penalties are called, or at least the impression of such a double standard.
Women only outnumbered men in two categories over the past two decades - racking up 152 fines for coaching, compared to just 87 for men, and 10 no press fines, compared to just six for men.
Serena Williams yells at umpire Carlos Ramos during her Women's Singles finals match in New York City on September 8, 2018. Serena eventually lost the game to Naomi Osaka. "So, I was really happy that she said that". "If you want to see good tennis, you have to let the players breathe a little". As Soraya Chemaly writes in her new book, Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women's Anger, "When women assert themselves, whether they are openly angry or not, they often encounter social opprobrium, invalidation, backlash, and punishment".
Freedman was scathing of Williams' outburst, claiming the USA media was the only party that was sympathetic towards her and believed she had done nothing wrong. "I'm just focusing on this tie and working again". WTA CEO Steve Simon called for changes in officiating, saying that "there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men vs. women".
Kavanaugh denies high school assault allegation
Feinstein called a meeting late Wednesday to share with the lawmakers the letter's contents but not the letter itself. However, Hill wants senators to put a process into place that will allow the accusation to be treated seriously.
As a young woman who is trying to wade through the world, I have noted that forthrightness, boldness and confidence in women is not welcome. She was called emotional, her rage labelled a meltdown, a tantrum.
"Ambitious" is a dirty word when describing a woman.
I hate to sound whiny, but Serena's incident, whether you think she is a sore loser or not, should bring us to think about how we treat women who are not conventionally "ladylike". After becoming the first Japanese to win a Grand Slam singles championship, media reports are calling her a new heroine for Japan. Advertising and sponsorship specialists predict a lot of such opportunities lie ahead for Osaka, who was born in Japan to a Haitian father and a Japanese mother and raised mostly in the U.S.
