On Tuesday night, members of Women’s Voices for Change attended a red-carpet coming out party for the Women’s Media Center, which held its first major public event at the Ziegfeld Theater with the premiere of WMC co-founder Jane Fonda’s new film, "Georgia Rule."

Co-stars Lindsay Lohan and Felicity Huffman were there, along with Fonda and Gloria Steinem and many other luminaries. Congratulations to WMC and to Jane!

Fonda’s had a busy week — she’s been on Letterman and Larry King, where she’s talking up how sex only gets better with age (she’ll be 70 in December). Here’s an interview with Fonda from the East Bay Express and an excerpt of a Q&A she did with the L.A. Daily News:

Q: What would be the perfect project for you as you near 70?

A: I want to create a movie that shows older people being erotic. I think it’s a shame we don’t have any image of older people still being sexy. […] The centerpiece will be the sexiest love scene that people have seen, only it will be with characters 70 or older.

Q: Do you have a co-star in mind?

A: I do. But I don’t want to say because he might not want to do it.

Q: Some people might have trouble squaring the sex and the Spirit.

A: I’m a progressive feminist Christian. And from traveling around the country, I know there are millions of people out there just like me. There’s nothing to square. It’s all part of being human.

    Let’s hear it for the F word. The Good F Word. There’s nothing shameful or distrespectful about being a feminist. Thanks, Jane, for reminding us.
