Isn't it nuts that Jane Fonda felt like she was always seen as someone else's wife? I mean, freaking Jane Fonda!!! She always appeared to be her own person, and I don't think anyone ever saw her as so-and-so's wife before they recognized who she was. Her husbands were famous too, but I wouldn't say they were moreso than she. Just goes to show ya how insidious such insecurities are for women in patriarchal Western culture.
