'The Conversation': Jane Fonda

While Jane Fonda has no shortage of knowledge to share, I was particularly moved and fascinated by her recovery from bulimia, which she battled with for over 25 years. It's amazing to see a woman as strong and self-assured as Jane and knowing that she struggled with something potentially life-threatening for so long. It is a true testament not only to her personal strength, but the ability we have as human beings -- and women in particular -- to overcome even the most daunting obstacles.
