On the occasion of International Women’s Day Pomellato presents a powerful Pomellato for Women video staring globally acclaimed actress Jane Fonda and actress presenter and actress Jameela Jamil.
The honest and thought-provoking interview addresses hard topics including inequality, privilege, bravery and resilience. The two discuss activism, the climate emergency, white supremacy, and the rampant history of gender inequality.
With their honest and open views, the two agree that there is hope for womankind if we stand up together.
The Pomellato For Women video will be aired on International Women’s Day, while the complete interview between Jane Fonda and Jameela Jamil will be broadcasted as a podcast in the Kering Women In Motion series.
Women In Motion highlights, through its Talks and its Awards, the creativity and uniqueness of talented women whose work in the fields of arts and culture is helping to transform our vision of the world. Jane Fonda was the first recipient of the Women In Motion Award.
In 2019, as an integral part of the platform, Kering launched the Women In Motion podcast aiming to celebrate and amplify the voices of women while advocating for gender equality in all cultural fields.
In the video Jane Fonda wears the Pomellato Kintsugi collection that integrates the ancient Japanese artform of ‘repairing’ objects, becoming a theme within the conversation.
Fonda compares the shiny gold fissure in her Kintsugi gemstone ring to the ability to heal and become stronger for it. The idea of resilience and giving new life to something that could have been discarded as ‘damaged’ becomes a metaphor for the perseverance of womenkind and underlines the power of showing our scars. Fonda has been open about her own traumas overcome and wears them today like a bold gem of honour.
Jameela Jamil was honoured to interview Fonda who she considers to be a personal hero. The two discover many points in common during their conversation and conclude that within women’s vulnerabilities and wounds lie their astounding capacity for resilience.
