Having first played in competitions from the age of five, the two sisters developed their prodigious games in the years that followed and turned professional in 1995, the start of their inexorable climb to the pinnacle of the women’s game." Serena had a dream and went for it, and you can too.
Rosie the riveter, despite contrary belief was not a real person, however this does not make her any less inspiring or less of a figure to be recognized. Rosie was a symbol during the time of World War ll, all the men had been set away to fight leaving the woman alone to make the war uniforms, to get jobs, to provide for their families, which was something that had never been done before. Rosie was a symbol to all women everywhere that they could do it, they could run the country without the men, and this speaks volumes. Rosie is still a famous figure today and she will most likely continue to be an inspiration for years to come, this is something that makes Rosie special, she is timeless and will continue to be inspiring for the lives of women everywhere.
