Jane Fonda’s new book!

Most people know Jane Fonda as an Oscar-winning actress, physical fitness pioneer, businesswoman, and bestselling author in her own right. Her new book however, focuses on a cause most important to Jane, a passion project she has been involved with for 18 years–adolescent sexuality and development.

In 1994, she founded the center to address Georgia’s teen pregnancy rate, which was the highest in the nation at the time. Jane sought to broaden the traditional prevention agenda to address the social circumstances that lie beneath the behavior, and since GCAPP’s founding, teen births in Georgia have decreased by 45%. She also founded Emory University’s Jane Fonda Center for Adolescent Reproductive Health, which opened in 2000, providing additional resources and research to support GCAPP’s mission.
