Fonda will speak at "Opening Doors" conference for girls
Bozeman Chronicle ^ | 2005/01/23 | Chronicle Staff

Posted on 01/22/2005 10:55:35 PM PST by Brian328i

Girls For A Change, a group of Bozeman High School girls, have been busy creating an educational and inspirational one-day conference for high school-age girls and actress/activist Jane Fonda has agreed to be the keynote speaker.

The conference will be held Saturday, Feb. 12, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Montana State University Strand Union Building.

"Opening Doors" is designed to help girls build a future in which they are economically self-sufficient and successful in all aspects of their lives -- personal, academic, and professional lives.

The planning committee's invitation to Fonda to be the keynote speaker "elicited a speedy and enthusiastic response," according to a prepared statement.

A two-time Oscar-winning actress, Fonda now focuses on girl's reproductive health and building resiliency in girls and boys by addressing destructive gender stereotypes. She has traveled extensively in the developing world on behalf of these issues.

The conference will include panel discussions, workshops, and art and movement activities.

With the help of professional and inspirational business women, the girls will learn strategies to critique stereotypes in the media, communicate more effectively and overcome stress and anxiety. They will also will explore their individuality, self-awareness, and confidence through creative writing, yoga, and improvisation.

Founded in January 1997 in Bozeman by 16 girls and their female mentors, Girls for a Change is devoted to supporting and encouraging the successful development of local girls.

"This group of girls is fabulous," Beth Nave, a program coordinator for Prevent Child Abuse Inc., who has served as liaison between the girls' planning committee, the adult planning committee and sponsors.

"They are excited to learn about the opportunities and resources available to them in their local community as well as the greater world and want to share that information with their peers."

The event is sponsored by Montana State University, Prevent Child Abuse, Inc. and Turner Youth Initiative.

The conference costs $5 for students, including snacks and lunch, and scholarships are available. Registration closes Feb. 10. Registration forms are available at local high schools.

The general public is invited to the noon luncheon with keynote speaker Jane Fonda; the cost for the lunch is $20.

This is horrible! At my school too. :(

There is a College Republican meeting on Monday, maybe this is something to do with it. What do you expect from LIBERAL Montana (don't kid yourself).

In other words, render the girls into completely unattractive women.

"In other words, render the girls into completely unattractive women."

You find women who want to learn self reliance and be able to take of themselves without a man to be unattractive? That speaks volumes about you. As a woman I find you to be unattractive.

You're misunderstanding what I said. There's nothing wrong with teaching self-reliance, but Jane Fonda wants to turn these girls into feminists. Please show me an attractive feminist.

I'm a conservative woman and my husband is a very conservative man. He found those traits upon which Fonda will speak as attractive in me.

Bozeman, Montana not very conservative? Please.

Well, in relation to this conference, there was this lovely tidbit also:
A two-time Oscar-winning actress, Fonda now focuses on girl's reproductive health and building resiliency in girls and boys by addressing destructive gender stereotypes.
 
Mightn't a girl believing she needs to be attractive be considered to be one succumbing to a "destructive gender stereotype"?

Montana is not as conservative as everyone thinks. I have no idea where you get that impression. Bozeman in itself is not, the surrounding area is due to the abundance of farmers/ranchers is conservative. And being a college town, the number of liberals is even higher.

Montana is not as conservative as everyone thinks.

It's not as Liberal as everyone thinks either. It's all about perception. My perception is that too many fools got snookered by that hard-left Liberal clown Governor Schweitzer and his big government ideals like removing bison hunts and raising taxes on businesses.

I didn't vote for the bastard, maybe those who did will get an eye full of just what a f***in' shyster that clown is, and vote his a$$ out in 4 years, or demand a recall in 2.

Jane Fonda's guide to self-sufficency for women:
1. Have a rich and famous father
2. Use father's influence to appear in some lousy movies (also rely on hot body to get movie parts. eg Barbarella)
3. Go to North Vietnam, aid the enemy, deride capitalism and the USA
4. Return to the United States and make some more crappy movies and more money(again, Daddy and Hot body. eg Coming Home)
5. Use body to attract and eventually marry one of the richest men in America
6. Make crappy workout videos featuring aforesaid hot body
7. Make millions of dollars in the USA from crappy movies and videos all the while deploring capitalism
8. Divorce one of the richest men in America. Get more money.
9. Become a role model for teenage girls. Preach Self-sufficency.

Here's one of her speeches.

http://www.libertyyes.homestead.com/files/JaneFondasHanoiRadioBroadcast.htm

JANE FONDA's RADIO HANOI BROADCAST



Hotel Especen; Hanoi-Vietnam :: 7 APR 95, 1911 hours:

The following public domain information is a transcript from the US Congress House Committee

on Internal Security, Travel to Hostile Areas, HR 16742, 19-25 September, 1972, page 7671.

[Radio Hanoi attributes talk on DRV visit to Jane Fonda; from Hanoi in English to American

servicemen involved in the Indochina War, 1 PM GMT, 22 August 1972

Text: Here's Jane Fonda telling her impressions at the end of her visit to the Democratic Republic

of Vietnam; (follows recorded female voice with American accent);



This is Jane Fonda. During my two week visit in the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, I've had the opportunity to visit a great many places and speak to a large number of people from all walks of life--workers, peasants, students, artists and dancers, historians, journalists, film actresses, soldiers, militia girls, members of the women's union, writers.

I visited the (Dam Xuac) agricultural coop, where the silk worms are also raised and thread is made. I visited a textile factory, a kindergarten in Hanoi. The beautiful Temple of Literature was where I saw traditional dances and heard songs of resistance. I also saw unforgettable ballet about the guerrillas training bees in the south to attack enemy soldiers. The bees were danced by women, and they did their job well.

In the shadow of the Temple of Literature I saw Vietnamese actors and actresses perform the second act of Arthur Miller's play All My Sons, and this was very moving to me--the fact that artists here are translating and performing American plays while US imperialists are bombing their country.

I cherish the memory of the blushing militia girls on the roof of their factory, encouraging one of their sisters as she sang a song praising the blue sky of Vietnam--these women, who are so gentle and poetic, whose voices are so beautiful, but who, when American planes are bombing their city, become such good fighters.

I cherish the way a farmer evacuated from Hanoi, without hesitation, offered me, an American, their best individual bomb shelter while US bombs fell near by. The daughter and I, in fact, shared the shelter wrapped in each others arms, cheek against cheek. It was on the road back from Nam Dinh, where I had witnessed the systematic destruction of civilian targets-schools, hospitals, pagodas, the factories, houses, and the dike system.

As I left the United States two weeks ago, Nixon was again telling the American people that he was winding down the war, but in the rubble-strewn streets of Nam Dinh, his words echoed with sinister (words indistinct) of a true killer. And like the young Vietnamese woman I held in my arms clinging to me tightly--and I pressed my cheek against hers--I thought, this is a war against Vietnam perhaps, but the tragedy is America's.

One thing that I have learned beyond a shadow of a doubt since I've been in this country is that Nixon will never be able to break the spirit of these people; he'll never be able to turn Vietnam, north and south, into a neo-colony of the United States by bombing, by invading, by attacking in any way. One has only to go into the countryside and listen to the peasants describe the lives they led before the revolution to understand why every bomb that is dropped only strengthens their determination to resist.

I've spoken to many peasants who talked about the days when their parents had to sell themselves to landlords as virtually slaves, when there were very few schools and much illiteracy, inadequate medical care, when they were not masters of their own lives.

But now, despite the bombs, despite the crimes being created--being committed against them by Richard Nixon, these people own their own land, build their own schools--the children learning, literacy--illiteracy is being wiped out, there is no more prostitution as there was during the time when this was a French colony. In other words, the people have taken power into their own hands, and they are controlling their own lives.

And after 4,000 years of struggling against nature and foreign invaders--and the last 25 years, prior to the revolution, of struggling against French colonialism--I don't think that the people of Vietnam are about to compromise in any way, shape or form about the freedom and independence of their country, and I think Richard Nixon would do well to read Vietnamese history, particularly their poetry, and particularly the poetry written by Ho Chi Minh.

Again, Bozeman in itself is not conservative.

Gallatin county pop: 67,831 (2000 Census)
Bozeman pop: 27,509 (2000 Census)

Just because Gallatin county is conservative doesn't mean Bozeman is.
Gallatin County Votes (2004)
Bush: 22,368 56.21%
Kerry: 16,381 41.17%

Kerry could carry the majority of Bozeman but lose against the majority of Gallatin county. If I can find a decent Precinct map of Gallatin county I'll give accurate results.

Districts that are basically Bozeman from leg2004 map:
64, 65, 66

Totals of Districts as Kerry/Bush:
64: 2609/2296
65: 2128/1473
66: 2795/1846

Other Districts of Gallatin County, Bush/Kerry:
63: 3202/2788
67: 3543/1441
68: 2304/1083
69: 4234/1311
70: 3494/2250

Now, do you want to argue more on the matter?

If you qualify that a victory margin of a couple of thousand votes in three out of five precincts in one county that overwhelming went for Bush as not being conservative what does?
