(Host: ReBirth Session) Jane Fonda is an actress, author, producer, activist, and exercise guru. Outspoken and committed, she supports environmental issues, peace, and female empowerment. She founded the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, and established the Jane Fonda Center for Adolescent Reproductive Health at the Emory School of Medicine. She cofounded the Women’s Media Center, and sits on the board of V-Day: Until The Violence Stops, a global effort to stop violence against women and girls. She is a former Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund.
Jane’s remarkable screen and stage career includes two Best Actress Oscars (Klute and Coming Home), an Emmy (The Dollmaker), a Tony Award nomination (33 Variations) and an Honorary Palme d’Or from the Cannes Film Festival—she is one of only three people to receive this honor. Her producer credits include Nine to Five and On Golden Pond. Off stage, she revolutionized the fitness industry in the 1980s with Jane Fonda’s Workout—the all time top-grossing home video. Jane has once again turned her attention to fitness with the release of a DVD set in 2010, with more releases scheduled for 2011, all under her Prime Time brand, aimed at the boomer generation. She has written a best-selling memoir, My Life So Far, and Prime Time, a comprehensive guide to living life to the fullest, particularly for boomers. In 2010, she made two new films: a French comedy, Et Si On Vivait Tous Ensemble, and Peace, Love & Misunderstanding. Jane is an avid reader, writer, hiker, fly fisherwoman, and meditator.http://www.janefonda.com
