    Thank you, Susan xx

  • April. what you’re doing is called fighting for environmental justice. Good for you. I focus a lot on the lack of proper sewage disposal in rural areas which is particularly worrisome in the South where the ground is wet and when it rains, raw sewage comes up through the ground and even into people’s homes. It’s very dangerous. In parts of Lowndes…[Read more]

  • Yesterday I went to Modesto in the northern part of the Central Valley to canvass with Working America and attend a joint fundraiser for them and the North Valley Labor Federation.

    • Love to see you working for labor rights and helping working America. My whole family was/is working America. Love seeing how much people enjoy volunteering. I got to get More into it.

    • Jane, you once again amaze me with your hard work with the working class of America. Working America is a great group, listening to the needs of the working class of our country. I love their task, Schools and Communities First. (I’m not sure if people understand how important it is to fight for proper funding for public schools.)
      Having a fundraiser with the union leaders is a great thing. The new president in 2020 needs to reach out to the working class, including the unions, now. They know how to organize and fight for the future of our country. I am a member and delegate for the Michigan Education Association/National Education Association. The NEA is the largest union in the United States. One in 100 Americans is a member of the NEA and 1 in 39 voters reside in an NEA household. I can only imagine what the numbers are if you combine all of the unions across the country. These union folks can be a powerful group and truly understand the needs of the working class of America.

    • Hi Jane, I’m Monika, I’m 15 and I’m your big fan from Poland, I love you, I can watch Grace and Frankie all day, this show is hilarious, it’s one of my favourite shows ever
      I totally adore you, you are my favourite actress, one of my biggest dreams is to meet you, sadly I will never have a chance because I live so far away but it would be just as great if you answer my comment, so I would know you read it, I know you are busy and I am no one important but
      I would be very happy
      Also I have a question, do you answer your fanmail? Is there a chance to get an autograph from you? It would be amazing
      I wish you all the best, because you are the best ❤️
      Greetings from Poland, love you xx

    • Dear Ms. Fonda: While not wanting to be a nag, I was just wondering if you received the two photos of my artwork that I mailed off to you via your Atlanta business office. Just curious… Thanks and have fun! Yours-Steven Vasko

    • Jane,
      Thank for you all of the hard work you are doing to advocate for labor rights. I studied political science in college and really developed a passion to work as an activist, rather than in a political position. With all that is going on in our country right now, I’m feeling more inspired than ever to use my voice to create change. I’ve been researching where I can get involved and I’m really excited about it. Thanks for sharing your experiences. I wish more people felt called to use their voice for good!

      -Robin

    • thanks for doing all these, please keep it up

    • Jane, I am thinking of you and your whole family. I am sending you all my love and compassion. Take care of each other in this sad time! Much love!

    • Hello Jane, my name is Barbara and I’m from Germany. I’m a big fan of you and her person! I have followed a lot of you and how much they are working for the people! Respect! I take my hat off to you. I would like to ask you if you have received my letter which I sent to the address in Atlanta. I know that they are very busy and traveling a lot. Still, it would be nice if they responded to my comment so I know they read it! I would be very happy about that. I wish you all the best and keep up the good work. I love you ❤ Greeting Barbara

    • I love you and lily so much it’s my dream to meet you all you guys are my idols

    • Hi Jane – I’m not sure if there’s a way to email you or send you a letter, but I’ll keep it shorter here to tell you how you’ve inspired me. I’m about to begin a master’s program this week studying drinking water contamination, and I’ve learned so much through your interviews online, recent documentary, and autobiography over the past few weeks. The feeling that you were spirited in your youth, felt the need to please certain people for much of life, and then got sick of it and became more authentic in your 30’s resonates with me. I love that you’re inspired by regular citizens fighting environmental contamination. I hope to start working with those groups soon and have some in the past. You’re a great role model to me as a woman and as a human. Thanks!

      • April. what you’re doing is called fighting for environmental justice. Good for you. I focus a lot on the lack of proper sewage disposal in rural areas which is particularly worrisome in the South where the ground is wet and when it rains, raw sewage comes up through the ground and even into people’s homes. It’s very dangerous. In parts of Lowndes County Alabama where this is true there is hook worm!!! One other thing: I didn’t get over the need to please an fit myself to what my man/husband/lover wanted until I was into my 60s!!! I’m a quintisential late bloomer

    • Dear Jane,

      – He is no longer there where he once was, but he is now everywhere you are.-

      My deepest condolences to you and your family.

      From the outpouring of love for your brother may you find the strength to get through this difficult time.

      Much love.

    • Beautiful artwork!

    • Hi Ms. Jane :). Today i’ve read your recent blogs and as always you are doing great job. I am living in Europe and few months i bought UK vogue with your interview and today i bought our CS Vogue and i was thinking wouldnt it be great to have Jane Fonda in our vogue, too. And guess what, i was in the middle of magazine and then i turned page and there were you, your photo from photoshoot for Barefoot in the park. I couldnt believe my eyes. I just wanted to tell you, you made my day and if you would like to i can send you one copy too. 🙂 Wish you nice day and thank you for everything you do and especially for your braveness in speaking out about health , you helped me overcome my disorder. Thank you ♥️

    • I just read about getting out the disability vote. I called our county voter registration board. They do not have a volunteer list to help take anyone to register. Called the Democratic headquarters in Columbia, SC, ditto. I left my name to help in any way. Now I will click on your links and see if I can get some place where I can be of help!

    • Dear Jane,
      I love to see you enjoy classical music! Pablo is amazing, I’ve had the opportunity to perform with him in the orchestra I work at as a violinist, he’s simply extraordinary! I can’t wait to meet you and Lily on Oct. 30th in Detroit; I’m counting the days.
      What you said about fame in your latest post made me want to tell you that it’s not because you are on G&F that I admire you, it is what you do and the force that you represent what moves me, and makes me (and I’m sure many others) admire you and want to meet you and share the space with you, even for a minute. I’m grateful for Grace and Frankie for bringing you and Lily to the front of the world´s screens and for making many people aware of the power houses you both are. Especially for those like me that are curious enough to dig into the internet archives to find all the amazing things both of you have been doing for decades, it is exhilarating, and moving to the core. I’ve become an activist in my heart and I’m starting to express it in my daily life, because of the incredible inspiration you are. I’ve recently been through tough times and experienced growth in many levels. And I have found in you and Lily great figures as empowered women and have inspired me to be myself and feel strong and good about being who i am. So, I thank you and Lily for that!
      Looking forward to meeting you in October!
      Sincerely,

      Eva

    • i love that dress you wore! also, seeing that museum you went to is definitely going to be added to my museum bucket list. with love x

    • Hi, Jane!

      I’m in the process of reading an absolutely fabulous book and I strongly recommend it to you: WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES, written by psychoanalyst Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
      The book includes 13 lessons and the author’s insightful perspectives and analysis of 20 fairy tales and myths from all over the world. It’s about waking up the woman inside us, the wild woman who lives inside us.
      I feel you gonna like it very much!
      love and hugs,

    I just got home from a short speaking tour. 4 events. I realized that’s about my limit because it requires me to be awake, rested and present. When Dona (a long-time blog follower) told me her daughter thought […]

    • Dear Jane – I can see why it bothers you that you’re receiving a lot of attention after Grace and Frankie than before. I don’t think it matters that people think you’re cool now, I think it matters what they think you’re cool for that does. Unfortunately, people often only tune into change-makers when it’s something that affects them personally or something they relate to.

      I’ve never been much of a celeb follower, but recently been watching documentaries of artists and thought-leaders, as I’ve been curious about what sparks and how they get people on board with change. I’m 26 now, and through a lot of self-work over the past few years something has shifted or unblocked and my mind feels like a sponge. I am curious about so much.

      After watching the Feminism documentary on Netflix, you featured and mentioned ‘Jane in Five Acts’ so I added that to my watchlist. (I recognised you from Grace and Frankie, I was like “she’s cool” 😉 , I should watch her documentary) My mind was blown at the bold, colourful life you have lived. It’s been a great fuel to my new found fire. There is so much I want to do in this lifetime that I sometimes get overwhelmed ~ you’re a true example of what is possible.

      Your use of “Fame” as a platform to activate change is so smart and admirable. Using art or entertainment as a way of translating a message seems to get people’s subconscious thoughts ticking towards a new idea. Growing up in South Africa, I have never felt my potential has been inhibited because of my gender. There are definitely elements of gender roles though. I had no idea that this history and movement was so recent and now feel responsible to make use of my power as a young woman. Not sure how to go about this just yet, but I’ll find a way.

      I was in Cannes by chance over the film festival this year and thought to myself “Hmm I wonder if Jane Fonda is around?”.. Second thought “Yeah but she’d be pretty busy anyway, I actually just want to hang out, chat and ask questions” haha..

      So there ya go, I think that you’re “cool” because of your energy and capacity to keep pushing towards something greater than yourself. Not quite sure how you do it, so let me know when you’re free for that coffee 😉 Jokes, haha. I am going to try to make over to the States this year, hopefully it overlaps with your evening with Lily Tomlin.

      Fame, perhaps has allowed people to be reminded of you and pay attention in a crowded world. I have found for better or worse, people listen to those that they like and feel are relevant. Perhaps also G&F has simply reminded people of how truly special you are. I am just very happy to be a beneficiary of your wisdom and find you inspiring. I also am guilty of not being “aware” of what you were doing until I was reintroduced to you through G&F. I am 57 so like so many people, I did not really know you growing up.

    • Dear Jane,

      What you talk about fame is very interesting.
      It is a fact that people become more visible and heard if they are famous. I understand that this should cause a certain indignation to be more heard when it is more famous, but if we think on the positive side, you are exactly the same person, with more experience and wisdom and with more public to listen to and learn from his legacy.
      I follow her life trajectory today, because since 2011, when the film ” Peace, Love & Misunderstanding ” was released, I was delighted with her life story and her teachings.
      I love to read because it allows my imagination to create scenarios and I truly feel what the words translate. After reading all your books and learning so much, so much, to complete the documentary, Jane in five acts, brought color and images to all those words I had read about her incredible, arduous and beautiful life.
      I am a better person and more aware of my actions with your shared experience.

      Thank you for this
      with all the affection and admiration, Fernanda

    • Dear Jane,

      I went to your event in Saint Paul, MN. It was an amazing experience and I really enjoyed it. I felt like I could relate to and learn from a lot of what you said. I watched your documentary a few days before your event and I really related to what you said about feeling old at 20 and that you felt darker and sadder. I’m in my early 20s and I feel the same way. I feel less alone now after listening to you speak more about this at your event. Thank you.
      I would like to have a career in acting and music and I hope that someday I get to work with you. I was also wondering if you have any advice for this? Especially since going for it is really scary to me.
      I am a fan of your films but I also just love who you are as a person. You inspire me in so many ways. I wanted to thank you for sharing your experiences, wisdom, and your heart.

      Love,
      Samantha

    • Jane, my name is Karine and I’m Brazilian. I’m your fan. I admire you and inspire myself. I loved reading your story. I agree!! I love you! Affectionate kisses.

    • Hola Jane. Cómo estás? Hace mucho escribí en este post t pero no sé cuál será el motivo por el cual no me lo aprobaron. Eso me apena. Usé el traductor cuidadosamente! Sé que no puse nada disparatado.
      En realidad quería decirte que no te apenes por la gente que “te sigue por tu fama actual”. Creo que tú eres más que “famosa”. Tú eres una estrella que con su luz guía por la senda del activismo. Creo que si bien Grace and Frankie te ha puesto en la cresta de la ola desde 2015, tú trasciende más allá. No sólo por tus películas o por “ser hija de Henry Fonda”, sino por tu gran entrega a las múltiples causas en las que entregas tu verdadera pasión. Yo admiro eso de ti. Tu entrega, tu energía, tu compasión y tu enorme humildad.
      Me gustaría conocerte, escucharte personalmente pero es imposible. No me atrevo a escribir en inglés porque temo cometer errores gramaticales serios… Espero esto no sea rechazado y tú puedas leerlo mediante el traductor de tu página!!!
      Dios te ilumine y te guíe siempre fortaleciendo tu lucha. Sé FELIZ y te envío un beso y un fuerte abrazo. Me encantaría que se lo des a Lily Tomlin también, porque con Netflix descubrí a una extraordinaria comediante aunque el personaje de Ernesthine lo conocía!( Es el nombre de mí mamá) Gracias a “la fama” ambas mí vida se ha vuelto mucho mejor. Me han impulsado a cambiar algunas cosas a mis 63 años de edad. Por eso….MIL GRACIAS!!! ABRAZOS Y BESOS!!!😍😍😍😍

    • Hi Jane, I have seen some of Grace and Frankie and also your TED talk on aging, and wanted you to know that Olga Mikhailovna, a lawyer and Director of International Relations at the Grabovoi Education Center in Belgrade, saw your TED talk and mentioned it to me (I’m in the U.S.). Dr. Grigori Grabovoi is a distinguished Russian scientist who was known at the Russian Academy of Sciences as an expert in Noospherics, and he uses some amazing consciousness-related methods for anti-aging, restoration, rejuvenation, and regeneration. These methods enabled his clients to grow back a thyroid, uterus, lung tissue, urethra, teeth, etc. The results were undeniable because the medical doctors of many of these clients had removed the organ in surgery, and the removed organ and the restored organ were confirmed with medical scans. No other intervention could have grown these organs back, so as you can well imagine, some of these doctors were astounded! The implications of this for anti-aging are pretty incredible. Dr. Grabovoi has been doing this for decades and has 6 volumes of documented (signed, sealed, and delivered, so to speak) results – Volumes 1-3, his results, and Volumes 4-6, his students’ results. The reason he is somewhat of an unknown here is mainly because of the language barrier, although now that is starting to change. Many are starting to know about him in Europe, and many will soon know about him here. If you’re interested, you could contact me, or if you would like to talk to Olga about it (she speaks English), you could reach her at https://www.grigori-grabovoi.world. Click on the X at the “Dear Visitors” overlay to remove it, and then click “Contact” at the top menu – Best regards, Sandy

    • Hi Jane, I learned and changed in a month. My messages were not approved until now for some reason. I reflected from the topic of being evolved to just love and focus on the Creator. I sometimes think about it because I’m human, but It’s more about love and loving others for who they are.

      Thank you,
      Sally

    • Hello Jane,
      my name is Virginia and I’m 21, I’m from Italy. I really didn’t know you before I started watching Grace and Frankie. One day my mum was passing by the tv and she said “hey, is that Jane Fonda?” And I was like “well I don’t know”. So I’m glad Netflix made this show with you and I’m glad I watched it. I think you said a lot of true things in this post, and I agree with the fact that people are attracted to fame for a lot of wrong reasons, but fame also means that people may listen to you, because they acknowledge your existence in this world and actually care what you have to say. Even thou you are saying the same things you were saying when you were less famous, the main thing is that now we get to hear them. I am really happy for your fame right now, because it really is impossible to have eyes and ears everywhere, everybody have to focus on something and this fame brings some of the focus on you. And I love that it does, because now I can too akcnowledge your existance, and I can listen to you and learn something I didn’t know yesterday, or be intrigued by something I didn’t think about. And I also can start watching all the movies you’re in because I got a crush on you (ooops). So, please don’t feel bad about all this emphasis, I think it is a good thing that people can now relate to you. I don’t think that people pay attention because you’re famous, I think that they choose to pay attention because they like you. Fame it’s just the thing that connects you to us, it’s the channel of communication.
      With much much love,
      Virginia.

  • Dear Raja, I read my blog comments and answer them myself. I can’t conceive of having someone else do it. Someone else does all the technical stuff like create the website (he just upgraded it. I write and send him what I write to post. His name is JJ and he’s cool.
