American actress and activist, Jane Fonda believes, people are tuning into watch and listen to Harvey Weinstein`s accusers simply because, they are “white and famous”.
JANE FONDA BELIEVES – HARVEY WEINSTEIN VICTIMS GET ATTENTION BECAUSE THEY ARE “WHITE AND FAMOUS”
Jane and close friend and activist Gloria Steinem, were being interviewed by MSNBC`s Chris Hayes, when he asked about the accusations that were being leveled against Harvey Weinstein. Jane Fonda decided to use that opportunity to disclose what she knew about the scandal.
“I knew about Harvey Weinstein, but kept quiet”
“It feels like something has shifted,” Fonda told Hayes. “It’s too bad that it’s probably because so many of the women that were assaulted by Harvey Weinstein are famous and white and everybody knows them. This has been going on a long time to black women and other women of color and it doesn’t get out quite the same.”

“I didn’t want to expose and I will admit that I should have been braver. And I think from now on I will be when I hear such stories,”
