WASHINGTON,-- Washington, DC --Thursday morning, on NBC's Today Show, Jane Fonda and Eve Ensler spoke about the 10-year anniversary of the Vagina Monologues. During the interview, on live television, Jane Fonda blurted the foul and offensive four letter "c"-word, referring to female anatomy.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) needs to take swift action to ensure broadcasters are held accountable. In a letter written to the FCC, Dr. Janice Crouse, Director and Senior Fellow of CWA's Beverly LaHaye Institute said "This incident follows a similar instance on CBS' Good Morning America show when Diane Keaton used the vulgar word 'f-- k.' Both of these instances occurred on morning programs when families are typically watching television with children around. But whether children or adults, we should not have crude and vulgar language broadcast over media to corrupt the culture and all of society."

Wendy Wright, President said "The topic was the Vagina Monologues, and the guest was Jane Fonda. What more did NBC need to be forewarned that something offensive would occur? A simple seven-second delay would have spared families throughout the country from Fonda's profanity. NBC deserves a big fat FCC fine."

Concerned Women for America (CWA) is urging the FCC to enforce decency standards and keep the airwaves clean.

Concerned Women for America is the nation's largest public policy women's organization.
