Marlo Thomas starts website for women

Marlo Thomas

NEW YORK -- AOL is partnering with Marlo Thomas for a website of her own.

Thomas says the site, which officially launched Wednesday, is aimed at woman over 35.

The well-known actress and social activist says the goal is for her to talk to the nation's women, and get them talking back. She says she wants women to feel "there's lots of dreaming yet to go."

She describes the site as video-heavy, including live streaming chat and user-submitted video, and says she wants to share ideas.

Next week, Thomas is releasing a memoir, "Growing Up Laughing."

Earlier this month, AOL added talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres to its Web properties as it began sharing content with the website of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
