Never believe what this creature says. She is just an attention wh0re. As long as she has been a left wing vocal celebrity, she would have mentioned decades ago. Her star power is near death and she wants some more press time. I don't buy, "I thought it was my fault." This is just a justification to why she had not come out with this earlier in life.

For all the faults in feminism, these things need to be said. Kudos, Jane.

Must be the "Hollywood casting couch" at work no doubt.

Don't know how much of what Jane Fonda says is believable she has been know in the past to "contradict" herself

Attacking the victim: the right-wing version of virtue signalling.

I don't think that phrase means what you think it means...

Any time a woman is raped it is a vicious, terrible, cowardly crime for which many never fully recover.

I am very sorry this happened to her.

She claims she was raped. Is there anything to back up that claim? Or are we just supposed to take her word for it, so she can garner the requisite sympathy preventing her from passing into obscurity.

I was raped too. There, I made a claim and published it. Give me sympathy and support

She must think she's like Donald Trump. She can say things without substantiating.

What a terrible thing to say, usually a person would NEVER make statements like that if there wasn't any merit to it. When a person comes forward and claims that they were sexually abused it isn't something that is lightly thrown around by people that were abused.

She should name her attackers and the companies they worked for but those rapists are probably all dead by now.

Funny, I don't I've ever seen a pic of her mother. I know women who were raped in their 40's who never reported it. They told me the specifics...but still weren't going to report it. What can you do? Well, learn to spot these types of people.

Unless they are Hanoi Jane. The woman has zero credibility.

Jane Fonda. Still saying relevant things. Really sorry this happened to her. Being born pretty has a serious side, certainly. It's not all pink frilly bows and cutesy cutesy...

bass4funk - you are wrong, there are lots and lots of proven cases of false rape reporting, especially now since the ultra feminism is a trend. so yes if she was, and it was her boss - sue him or file complaint. Substantiate your claims, always!

Or: What can you do? Stop raping. It's not for potential victims to take responsibility for not being attacked. It is the responsibility of people who think they have the right to force sex on people, to not rape.

Society should be educating potential attackers, but it's not.

Ms Fonda is brave indeed to speak out. Every time a survivor does so, it gives other silent victims he strength to speak out.
