Abortion Rights presents an exclusive screening of THE JANES, the story of an underground network of women in Chicago in the 1960s and 70s who provided safe, affordable, illegal abortions to women in need.

Using code names, fronts and safe houses to protect themselves and their work, the accused had built an underground service for women seeking safe, affordable, illegal abortions. They called themselves Jane.

Defying the state legislature that outlawed abortion, the Catholic Church that condemned it, and the Chicago Mob that was profiting from it, the Janes risked their personal and professional lives to help women in need in the pre-Roe v Wade era.

This powerful film will be followed by a Q&A with co-directors Tia Lessin and Emma Pildes.
