One of the most recognized, outstanding women of our times, Jane Fonda is an Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress and highly successful producer. For many decades she has also been an internationally renowned (and occasionally notorious) social activist. She famously opposed the Vietnam War and strongly protested the Iraq War. A longtime supporter of feminist causes, she worked with Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem to co-found the Women's Media Center, on whose board she currently serves. She was involved from the beginning in Eve Ensler’s V-Day, a potent international movement to stop violence against women, inspired by the off-Broadway hit The Vagina Monologues, of which she is an honorary chairperson. She was present at their first summit in 2002, bringing together Eve Ensler, Afghan women oppressed by the Taliban, and a Kenyan activist campaigning to save girls from genital mutilation.
She revolutionized the fitness industry with the Jane Fonda Workout. Subsequently more than seventeen million copies of her fitness books, videos, and recordings have been sold. In 2001 she established the Jane Fonda Center for Adolescent Reproductive Health at Emery University

In 2005 her New York Times’ bestselling memoir, My Life So Far, concerned the first half of her dramatic life, focusing on her family, such early films as Barbarella and Cat Ballou, the marriages to Roger Vadim and Ted Turner, the two Academy Awards, and much more. Her new book, Prime Time, covers the next portion of her life and movingly describes how to live a more insightful, healthy, and fully integrated life, one profoundly in touch with our bodies, minds, and spirits, and with our talents, friends, spirituality, and social communities.
She received a Tony nomination in 2009 for her role in 33 Variations.
