Jane Fonda Gets Real About The Root Of Her Teenage Eating Disorder In A Poignant Essay For Lenny Letter

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadJane FondaGirl Power

no title

Jane Fonda is a very strong, influential, and complicated woman.

In an emotional essay for Lenny Letter, Fonda spoke out on how her teenage eating disorder contributed to her feminism and activism. The message was as sad as it was enlightening for readers of Lena Dunham's up and coming newsletter.

For those who don't know, the exercise guru comes from a pretty dark childhood — not only did her mother Frances Ford Seymour commit suicide when Jane was just a young girl, but she also allegedly suffered emotional abuse at the hands of her step-mother Susan Blanchard and her father Henry Fonda.

According to Ms. Fonda, Susan (who is eleven years YOUNGER than the actress), would tell her that she was too fat and needed to lose weight if she ever wanted a boyfriend. To make matters worse, these messages echoed the sentiments of her father, a blow that was very difficult to handle.

The activist recalled the painful memories, revealing:

"When I hit adolescence and the specter of womanhood loomed, all that mattered was how I looked and fit in. My father would send my stepmother to tell me to lose weight and wear longer skirts. One of my stepmothers told me all the ways I'd have to change physically if I wanted a boyfriend. Meanwhile, I sort of … hollowed out. Almost everything interesting about me scooped itself out and took up residence alongside the empty, disembodied me."

Ugh. How horrific and detrimental to poor Jane's psyche!

The beauty added:

"It's hard to be embodied if you hate your body. Like three of my father's five wives, I developed an eating disorder (probably to fill the emptiness), and given that it was, at least partially, an inauthentic me that I presented to the world, I instinctively chose men who would never notice because of their own addictions and "issues." Ah, but they were interesting, charismatic, alpha men, and they validated me."

Despite all the inner-turmoil J.F. faced, she was able to use this pain to propel her into activism. While the momma originally focused her energies on politics, she slowly shifted her view towards women's rights and finally found her confidence:

"For me to really confront sexism would have required doing something about my relationships with men, and I couldn't. That was too scary. It would have been like stepping off a cliff without knowing if there was a trampoline below. When I turned 60 and entered my third and final act, I decided that, no matter how scary it was, I needed to heal the wounds patriarchy had dealt me. I didn't want to come to the end of my life without doing all I could to become a whole, full-voiced woman."

Well, better late than never! It's just impressive to hear a woman who found strength in pain!

Luckiest Girl Alive Author Jessica Knoll Reveals She Was Gang Raped, Just Like In Her Novel — Read Her Brave & Heartbreaking Essay

Filed under: Icky Icky PooInspirationSad SadTwitterFacebookBookzLena DunhamInstagram

no title

This is equal parts brave and heartbreaking.

Rape is one of the most common issues that still goes unaddressed in today's society, which is why we need to acknowledge survivors' stories when they feel ready to share them.

Case in point, best-selling author Jessica Knoll just wrote a powerful essay about her own gang rape for Lena Dunham's Lenny Letters mailing list on Tuesday, and to call it moving would be an understatement.

You may know Jess as the author behind Luckiest Girl Alive, and while her fictional main character Ani is a victim of gang rape in the book, the writer never publicly shared that she herself was as well.

What I Know perfectly sums up the range of emotions a person can feel when they are attacked, and we could not admire Jessica more for putting her own experience out there to help others.

Ch-ch-check out Jessica's inspirational essay on rape culture (below)!!!
