Brie Larson Interviews Jane Fonda, Bravely Reveals Past Rape And Sexual Abuse

Posted by

In an interview with Net-A-Porter, Jane Fonda opens up about her past sexual assault in an effort to empower other women.

Fellow Oscar-winner Brie Larson, who is also a women’s rights and victims advocate, interviewed Fonda for the piece. Early on, the conversation turned to feminism and the “disease to please” men that she says stems from a patriarchal society.

“To show you the extent to which a patriarchy takes a toll on females; 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,” Fonda said.

Fonda, 79, did say she later worked with young girls who have been raped and “didn’t even know it was rape.”

“One of the great things the women’s movement has done is to make us realize that [rape and abuse is] not our fault. We were violated and it’s not right,” she added.
