She has dedicated herself to working with pregnant teens in the Atlanta area, creating the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, a nonprofit organization established with funds from the Turner Foundation.
Received an honorary degree from Emerson College in May 2000.
In March 2001, it was announced that Fonda had donated $12.5 million to Harvard University's School of Education to study the role of gender in education. Her donation was reportedly the largest in the school's history to that date.
Comparing third husband Turner to her father: "Oh, he's very much like my father, with none of the bad parts. He's like my father, and sometimes he even sounds like him, and sometimes he looks like him. He loves fishing, my dad was a fisherman... One big difference. I never know how to say it in English, but 'bien dans sa peau.' Ted is well within his skin. Ted is not afraid of expressing need, and he loves women, and he is not threatened by them."---Jane Fonda to Vanity Fair, April 1997.
"I have been successful, famous, financially independent... all of those things are true," says Fonda. "Yet, behind the closed doors I was afflicted with the disease to please, and would totally give up my own voice. That shows how insidious misogyny is, that even for someone like me, it can invade your core."---Fonda talking about her memoir, "My Life So Far" to CNN.com, April 5, 2005.
