Raped as a child. This is what Jane Fonda is not proud of but doesn’t fear to speak about. Her feministic mindset has been focused on preventing similar abuses for almost 50 years, and her efforts weren’t in vain.

Amazing activist

Jane Fonda is already 80, but she doesn’t waste her time sitting in the garden or knitting. Her extensive programs are aimed at improving and eradicating several urgent issues. Her immigrants’ protection and desires to provide them with equal rights have already become a loud statement in America.

Her support to all who suffered from cancer is invaluable, as she also had the tumor removed from her lip. Finally, her feminist program is created towards raising awareness about the women abuse, particularly sexual.

Childhood sexual suffering

In her recent interview, dedicated to the International Women’s Day, Jane Fonda couldn’t help talking about the protection of female rights as well as the terrifying problem of the modern world – sexual abuse. She described the story of her life, her severe childhood. Since those times, she eventually decided one thing for herself:

I wasn’t going to give up who I was in order to please the man I was with.

The scariest part of her challenging childhood was her own sexual abuse that she is not ashamed of speaking about. Fonda is sure, her example of a self-confident woman will help many girls stay strong and not let men use them:

I’ve been raped, I’ve been sexually abused as a child and I’ve been fired because I wouldn’t sleep with my boss, and I always thought it was my fault, that I didn’t do or say the right thing.

Jane Fonda is greatly proud the feminist’s movement could achieve one amazing thing. Women are not guilty of the abuse. That is not their fault. They are violated, and that is not right.
