"To show you the extent to which a patriarchy takes a toll on females, I've been raped," she says. "I've been sexually abused as a child."

"I know young girls who've been raped and didn't even know it was rape," she continues. "They think, 'It must have been because I said 'no' the wrong way.' 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."

Fonda also told the Room star that she was once fired from a job, all because she wouldn't accept her boss' sexual advances.

"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," she confesses.

You are so right , she did more for the Viet Cong , so much so that she should have been arrested for treason , I think the only thing that held that back was that the father was a bomber piolet had had the rank of Col. That shouldn't have made a difference , in fact she should still be held responsible . A lot of Americans died in that conflict and that gook lover who smiled every time she got to sit on a gooks lap was disgraceful. She also was handed a note by a pow hoping that Jane would let family know there sons or fathers were alive ands she turned it over to the prison warden got several prisoners hurt badly , yes she is a real piece of work , that one !!
