Between 1969 and 1973, a group of Chicago feminists banded together to protect women from back-alley abortions and exploitative doctors. They taught themselves how to perform safe (though illegal) abortions and they called their organization 'Jane'; this documentary tells their fascinating story. ~ Rovi
