Fonda, who founded WMC with Gloria Steinem further added, “Attacking the media is the first step and move toward fascism. The cornerstone of democracy is an independent, democratic media. And it’s under attack in a major way because bad guys are running it all. We have to make sure it doesn’t continue.”

The Oscar winning actress while talking at the Women’s Media Center Awards in New York City on Thursday, said, “It has never been more important. Our democracy is fragile and it’s under attack. Civility is under attack. We don’t have to take it anymore. Voting is the way to stop it. Everybody has to vote and I think they will”.
