Storyline

BASED ON A TRUE STORY Chicago, 1969 - Imagine a world where abortion is punishable by prison, and getting birth control is nearly impossible. As a result, women die every day from taking matters into their own hands. When a pregnant student at the University of Chicago attempts to take her own life, Rose (Cait Cortelyou) and Janice (Cody Horn) find a doctor willing to perform the procedure in secret to save the woman's life. Sparked by this experience, Rose and Janice form the Jane Collective: a secret organization to help other women obtain safe and illegal abortions. Operating like a spy network, complete with blindfolds and code names, the Janes help thousands of women - but they can't hide from the police forever. Written by Cait Cortelyou

I love this movie so much. 1) I had no idea that the Jane Collective existed. 2) There couldn't be a better moment to talk about this history and the way in which legalizing abortion saves women's lives, both literally and figuratively. But 3) it's a really great movie! Well written, beautifully acted, well directed; this is a compelling story about a group of women finding their individual and collective voices as they endeavor to help each other and to help strangers.
