You may know Jane Fonda as an actress, but she has done so much more than just acting.

Jane Fonda has been a strong activist for most of her life and has been standing up for the things that she believes in in awesome ways.

During her 1972 Oscar acceptance speech, Fonda delivered it using only sign language.

This was in defiance of the fact that the Academy refused to have an ASL translator during the event.

You may be wondering, what does Fonda write about in her blog?

Well… everything.

There seems to be no topic that is off-limits to her–squirrels, politics, the climate crisis, dismantling hate groups.

In a post entitled Pins and Needles, Jane Fonda shares her thoughts on the upcoming election as she is seen casting her ballot.

She writes, “My belief is that if Biden wins and is brave and bold (we have to make sure he will be), he can bring enough good jobs and pay proper attention to working people in the middle of the country who have been ignored and left behind by previous elected officials (of both parties). That may be a step forward in quieting the anger that’s been erupting in places where militias exist, ease the despair that fuels the opioid pandemic and begin to address the underlying causes of police violence.”

No matter your political views, it is clear that Fonda just wants what’s best for the country and its citizens.

But when she doesn’t feel like getting into heavy topics like politics, Fonda is just as content with writing about the immediate world that exists around her–namely the squirrel and squirrel feeder that is in her backyard.

In her post, Build It And They Will Come, Fonda tells us that, “It’s 12:30pm and I’ve already filled the little pot 3 times. Maybe there are a lot of squirrels and I just choose to think it’s one squirrel…my squirrel. A girl squirrel. But if that’s the case she’s on track to become a very plump squirrel. My social media followers tell me squirrels hide and/or bury the nuts. She must do it very fast. I went to the gym to workout, filling the pot right before that. When I came back an hour later the pot was empty. My neighbor, the artist Joan Scheibel, took this picture while I was working out.”

So be sure to check out Fonda’s blog and share it with someone else who would appreciate this unfiltered look into the mind of a long-time American icon.
