Jane Fonda discussed the need for more diversity in Hollywood during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes.
Fonda received the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award.
The DeMille award honors "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment”.
There's a story we've been afraid to see and hear about ourselves in this industry. A story about which voices we respect and elevate… and which we tune out, Jane Fonda.
Fonda asked Hollywood executives to “make an effort to expand that tent” so that everyone's story can be heard.
The actress also acknowledged “those who marched and fought" for equality in the past and those still fighting today.
Previous winners of the Cecil B. DeMille Award include Fonda’s father Henry Fonda, Oprah Winfrey, and Tom Hanks.
