Who run the world, GIRLS! Serena Williams narrates Nike's new women empowerment "Dream Crazier" ad, and it's EVERYTHING. Check out the new spot, plus deets on Rena's new fashion feat inside...

For the follow up to Colin Kaepernick's "Dream Crazy" Nike ad, the sports retail giant put female empowerment in the limelight, letting young girls know they can stand for whatever they believe in, no matter how "crazy" it may seem.

Women can do the exact same things as men do on the field/court, yet they're criticized for being too "emotional" and too "dramatic".  If she doesn't show emotion, she's lazy, boring, incompetent. Let society tell it, women are never good enough no matter what they do.  But Serena is urging folks, especially women, to BE anyway.  Because they're going to call you crazy regardless, show them what it really looks like.

"If we show emotion, we're called dramatic. If we want to play against men, we're nuts. And if we dream of equal opportunity, delusional," the 23-time Grand Slam winner said.

As 'Rena narrates the spot, footage of young female athletes slaying at their sport plays in the background.

"When we stand for something, we're unhinged," she continued. "When we're too good, there's something wrong with us. And if we get angry, we're hysterical, irrational or just being crazy. But a woman running a marathon was crazy. A woman boxing was crazy. A woman dunking, crazy. Coaching an NBA team, crazy. A woman competing in a hijab; changing her sport; landing a double-cork 1080; or winning 23 grand slams, having a baby, and then coming back for more, crazy, crazy, crazy, and crazy."

The commercial also features history making Olympic gold gymnast Simone Biles, Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, and others. The spot is quite powerful and every little girl (and even grown women) need to see it.

In other Serena news...

 

Serena Williams is expanding her fashion empire.

After launching her own clothing line and making other power moves in the industry, the fashion queen has been appointed to join Poshmark’s board of directors. And she's amped!

“I’m really excited to join Poshmark because it really speaks to my core values,” Serena said in a statement via Ad Week. “They really believe in so many different aspects of my life that I am not only living but I’m also preaching.”

Poshmark is an online social commerce marketplace (one of our personal faves too) where users can both sell and buy clothes, jewelry, and other accessories. The company, who has been in the business for the last eight years, has five board members. And guess what? Serena is the FIRST woman to join the board. WOOT!

The new mom has been an avid Poshmark buyer/seller for years. She debuted her own closet for fans to shop from on the platform. And, of course, everything is A1. She has pieces that range from custom Gucci to red carpet dresses she has worn. All of the proceeds from her closet will be donated to the Yetunde Price Resource Center, a nonprofit created by Williams to help victims of violence. Rummage through her closet here.
