It is important that great women are honored in this way as equality has been a historic struggle. However, it is unconscionable that this would be done by including Jane Fonda. To try an analogy, imagine a male Hollywood actor who was found to have covered up the rapes of a hundred women or more in a commune where he had visited several times, having made promotional videos of the wonderful housing and treatment they received? Suppose he called the raped women whores and tried to get them to confess their sins that put them there? Suppose the women had the opportunity to slip pieces of paper identifying themselves or their situation, and he had handed them to the men of the commune who later raped them more (also refuting any defense that he hadn't known anything about the incidents)?
Suppose a few decades have passed, and he was now being honored as part of a large event, and that he was made a key element. Should we forget the earlier behavior and/or attribute it to youthful exuberance?
