Jane Fonda: Well-Dressed Feminist

To be a revolutionary you have to be a human being. You have to care about people who have no power.

Most people who think about Jane Fonda, probably recall the 1980s image of the fitness video guru in a unitard that left little to the imagination.  But, before becoming a workout icon, her early acting career was launched by movies like Barberella, which worked to, in a very interesting way, change the way women were viewed. Forty years later, Fonda co-founded the Women’s Media Center and has spoke out against female genital mutilation. In 2001, she even established her own organization called the Jane Fonda Center for Adolescent Reproductive Health.

During her many efforts to fight against patriarchy and improve the plight of women all over the world, it is no secret that Jane Fonda has also continued to have a great personal style. Making her obviously, a well-dressed feminist. Check out this interview with Fonda on feminist.com and this timeline of her iconic looks.
