Thursday, October 13, 7:00 p.m.
Award-winning film directed by Tia Lessen and Emma Pildes telling the story of a small group of Chicago women who built an underground service for women seeking safe, affordable, illegal abortions pre-1972. Using code names, blindfolds, and safe houses to protect their identities and their work, they called themselves, “Jane.” Facing off against the mafia, the church, and the state, the Janes exhibited unparalleled bravery and compassion for those most in need.
