SYNOPSIS:
What does it take to launch a movement? Just ask Jane — or rather, “the Janes,” a group of courageous young women dedicated to providing abortion services pre-Roe vs. Wade. Based on a true story and spanning the years 1969 to 1973, director Rachel Carey delivers an informative and inspiring film that is as poignant as it is powerful. Willing to risk jail and put in jeopardy their personal safety, education, futures, and perhaps even their lives, we watch as one woman recruits another, who recruits another, and so on, to form an underground network willing to defy the authorities and ultimately help more than 11,000 Chicagoans secure safe, albeit illegal abortions. Passing the baton on as one crew replaces another, Ask For Jane reminds us that activism can bring about change and that sisterhood is powerful, something to hold onto at a time when Roe vs. Wade could be on the chopping block. —Barbara Pokras, ACE
