Making Movies That Are Helpful for Humanity
Jane Fonda envisions a future in which women make more films in Hollywood.
JANE FONDA: I think if women had more control in Hollywood, there would be more complicated movies about complex human issues that would be more respectful of audiences. Gratuitous violence would be down, objectification of women would be down, misogyny would be down. I think men and women both would be respected more as full human beings if women had more say-so in Hollywood.
Our movies are global. Our television is global. And so what we put out there impacts the world and how other people think, and so it's a definite goal to work for. It goes from a hierarchy with men at the top to a circle with men and women all together trying to make movies that are more helpful for humanity.
