Jane Fonda on living to see the #MeToo movement

Jane Fonda

(CNN)Jane Fonda is grateful that the #MeToo movement is happening in her lifetime.

"I think it's so important," Fonda, 80, told CNN while promoting her HBO documentary, "Jane Fonda in Five Acts." "I never thought that what's happening, I would live to see this."
Fonda, who has been centrally involved in the Time's Up movement, told CNN that when the Alianza Nacional de Campesinas (The National Farmworker Women's Alliance) reached out to women in Hollywood in a letter last November, the idea of being able to fight for gender equality beyond Hollywood became "a living, breathing, palpable thing."
