Event description
Ask for Jane recounts the story of a group of young women establishing an underground abortion resource network in Chicago pre-Roe v. Wade.

About this Event

Get popcorn and a soda/water on us and enjoy this screening of Ask for Jane. Based on a series of real events, Ask for Jane recounts the story of a group of young women who established an underground abortion resource network in Chicago that gave over 11,000 women access to this service between 1969 and 1973, preceding Roe v. Wade. It is because of feminist pioneers, like the Jane Collective, that women reclaimed entitlement to their bodily autonomy and reproductive rights.

The following panel discussion, featuring representatives from Ask for Jane, NIRH, the Chicago Abortion Fund and one of the "Jane's," will be a vibrant discussion about the frightening parallels 46 years later, a look ahead towards the 2020 election and the current U. S. Supreme Court case that could be the one to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the work being done to ensure that legislatures in states and cities across the country are moving forward protections for abortion rights and equitable access to abortion.

After the panel discussion, join us for a reception for continued fellowship and enjoy a beer or a glass of wine and light hors d’oeuvres.

All proceeds from the event will support NIRH and the Chicago Abortion Fund
