Germaine Greer vs Jane Fonda: 'Poor old Jane has a replacement hip but not a replacement brain'Germaine Greer says Jane Fonda has spent a fortune on surgery but should stop pretending to be youngGermaine Greer has ridiculed Jane Fonda for suggesting women should try to stay young in order to attract men, suggesting the actress could add a brain transplant to her list of surgical enhancements.

Greer said she was incredulous to read Fonda’s comments, made in an interview with the Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/11623128/Jane-Fonda-Men-want-young-women.-For-us-its-about-trying-to-stay-young.html).

The two women are of a similar age – Greer is 76, and Fonda 77 – but have very different views on the ageing process

“I read Jane Fonda today saying men want younger women so we have to try to look young. Jane! Why not say older women want gorgeous boys? Men want older women? So let them want. There’s no shortage out there.

“You don’t have to pretend to be one,” Greer told the Hay Festival, to peals of laughter from the audience.

The feminist author said the pressures on women are greater now than they were in 1970, when she published her seminal work The Female Eunuch.
The cosmetics industry is part of that pressure, Greer said. The conversation then led back to Fonda, who is the face of L’Oreal’s anti-ageing creams.
Some of what she says is true, I read the whole thing through which I don't often do with an article like this, at least she is a liberal that made her points clearly, with most to day it is meaningless drivel.
