Harper’s Magazine, n+1, and Women Make Movies present a screening of the documentary JANE: AN ABORTION SERVICE, followed by a conversation with Laura Kaplan, the author of The Story of Jane: The Legendary Underground Feminist Abortion Service, and the journalist Madeleine Schwartz.

Jane: An Abortion Service follows the activities of a Chicago-based women’s health collective, members of which performed—without formal medical training—nearly 12,000 safe illegal abortions between 1969 and 1973. An interview with some of its members appears in the April issue of Harper’s Magazine
