In a letter to Lenny, Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s online newsletter, Jane Fonda said

I was not alone. The personal became political, and I became an embodied feminist. I had gone from believing that women’s issues were a distraction, mere ancillary problems to be addressed after everything else had been taken care of, to the realization that women are the issue, the core issue. We will fail to solve any problem — poverty, peace, sustainable development, environment, health — unless we look at it through a gender lens and make sure the solution will be good for women.

It took me 30 years to get it, but it’s OK to be a late bloomer as long as you don’t miss the flower show.
